Rainbow in Soft Sunlight

Pictures: I took this shot a couple of years back and I can’t remember where but it looks like a nice place. I found this one deep in my files and I really like the light.


Weather: Well as I sit here today the wind is bring colder weather and the temperatures is going down today and the weekend looks like its is going to be chilly but Monday will start a warm up and next week looks nice. I just topped off my propane tanks so I’m ready for the cooler weekend!

Update: About 4 pm it started snowing here in Deming, it don’t do that a lot here but it is today. No problem, I’m burning the propane and I am toasty!

Wild Flowers 2

Pictures: Just couple more wild flowers.

The crops on these next two are so heavy that you can’t click and make them bigger.



Rainbow from yesterday evening, this is 10 shots stitched together and it has flaws! About 1/3 the way over from the right it bent my rainbow a bit, I had to try and clone in the upper right comer of the image and the left side is a bit darker than the right. I need to buy me a wide angle lens. At any rate it was a beautiful full double rainbow.


Exercise: I walked 3 miles today.
Update: After getting back from my walk this morning my friend (Barry) ask if I wanted to join him in a trip to Walnut Canyon National Park (Just east of Flagstaff, AZ), so we went, which added another 1.7 miles to my walking today. (Pictures later on)

Part of a Rainbow

Pictures: A little bit of a Rainbow, after the rain.


Weather: It has been fairly warm for this area and I thinking about moving higher but maybe it’ll cool off. We have not had any rain for a spell either.

Update; The afternoon has brought a good rain shower, which is good, except the area I am in is a muddy one when it rains. Lucky for me it will dry fast once the rain stops. Maybe the rain and the clouds will bring a nice sunset 🙂

Exercise: I rode for 10 miles on the bike today.

Weather: We had a little rain over the last two days and I am surprise we are getting as much rain as we are but it is a good thing for the area. I am wanting to move north a bit but I am not looking forward to cooler temperatures. Speaking of rain it is just now starting again, wow, lots of water in this area of the desert over the last week or so.

Little move

Last nights sunset.

Move: I moved about 15 or 20 miles today, just to a different area of the forest. On the good side of things this area is a cleaner area because it is not beside the interstate ( the last one was). Interstate exit seem to catch a lot of trash. Another good thing is I seem to have a few more TV station.

Tablet: Today I have flashed my tablet with a new OS. I put Cyanogenmod 12 on it. Now I can taste Lollipop 🙂 This is the first time I have flash a Rom, I have rooted a few devices but always left the stock Rom in, but not this time. I probably burned a couple of gigs of data but now I have something to play with.

First stop

Storrie Lake: My time here is near over and I have really enjoyed my first time as a volunteer. The staff that I worked with where all super supportive, which makes for a great work environment. I don’t know whether or not I will ever volunteer at a state park again, but I will say I am glad I did this summer.

Computers: Today I am backing-up my Desktop computer and transferring files and folders. I did a full image back-up and copy all Documents and Music over to the laptop.

Pictures: Here is a rainbow in the desert somewhere near Deming, NM.

La Ventana Arch/ Which is located in the area of El Malpais National Monument This is where I will be stopping first, after leaving here. Well, I will be parking about 5 miles from the arch, a good bike ride 🙂
By the way, if you ever get in the area around Grants, NM. take Highway 117 south for about 10 miles or so to see this area. Well worth seeing, beautiful mountains on one side of the road and miles of lava fields on the other, a absolute beautiful contrast of landscapes.

Exercise: Yes, I got to that today, with about 6 miles on the bike and a little stretching.

Tomorrow : Tomorrow will be a day of chores with getting everything ready to go. Laundry is first on the list and then it will be doing things around the RV and turning in all my tools and such. Looks like Wednesdays morning will be the day for traveling, I look forward to it 🙂
