Age, wisdom, tired backs, just a much needed vacation – who knows why, but we’ve slowed down. I find that my memory is better – can it be the space taken by work is what is making my memory burp?

Today we have no idea of where we are heading. Definitely in a southerly direction but the options are many and varied. High country for at least this final night of our trip or high tail it home? I think the former.

The only disappointing part of the trip was the wildlife sightings. Not so many. Here they are:

White tail deer – one of them ended up on Bill’s dinner plate last night

Mule deer


Crows by the hundreds


Blue Heron (Bosque del Apache)



Squirrels and chipmunks

Crested jays

Wolf dogs – they only sort of count since they were in captivity

HUUGE Bear scat = glad it was only the scat!

And magnificently on state route 152 a hawk taking off with a snake in its talons. Most incredible to witness.
