Cold up there!

Pictures: I took this shot from the Ranger Station yesterday morning. Mt Taylor ….. (in my best hillbilly speak) “I think maybe it was cold up there on that there hill” :)

Weather: It is time to fuss …. well a little anyways :evil: It has been just a little chilly for my taste of late and a pretty cool time for Mid April in this area. Maybe we’ll get one of the late snows again this year. Can’t wait for the summer.

Tired: I have been feeling a little tired today, maybe I walked too much on my weekend :) I still got a little done but not enough to count much. Or maybe it is just my Monday 😧

Campground: I’m full tonight, all ten sites taken. One group had 3 vans and a SUV with 25 people. A group of geologist out to study the volcano rocks.

Night folks

Black and White

Pictures: Alix over at alixbleus suggested that I try some Black and White photo. I am not very good at that but here are a couple of the ones I posted in the last few days now in B&W.

Here is why they call it the narrows, the narrow space between lava and the sandstone buff, just enough for the raod.

Camp Ground: It has been pretty busy around the campground with more than half the sites always occupied. The sites here need a lot less care than those in the state park where I volunteered last year and I have only half as many sites, but there is plenty work to be done outside the campground. I work as much out of the campground as I do in it, probably more. I am still very much liking the volunteer gig here. Tomorrow we are off on another nature walk, it’ll be good to be out and about.

Night folks
