Pictures: Here are some shot from around the camp ground.
NOTE: If these photos are not showing, remember that this is the day/evening that Flickr(Where I link/host my photo from) is shutting down for maintenance/Moving for about 12 hours.
Here I am all nestled in a site.
One of the enlarged and leveled site.
One of the old site not improved, it is a very large site but not level.
Here is a map of the trails that I so love about this area.
Exercise: I walked 2.8 miles today, just love the trails around here 🙂
Weight: I am down about 35 lbs from the 1st of Feb …. so I am working on it.
I am going to end my post early today due to the Flickr shutdown this evening so
Good day Folks
Pictures: I am sure that I have posted this shot back a couple of years ago or so but I like the colors(yellow, orange and blue) and the fire, so I will give it life again.
Hot air balloons are interesting, light weight material that looks like a cigarette burn would destroy it but they shoot a large steam of fire up inside it and it works beautifully. Mind you I know that the balloons are likely made of material that can deal with the heat and fire that it encounters, but just looking at it makes me wonder, LOL.
Exercise: Back to the short walk today, too much wind this morning for the bike ride.
Ride: My friend Barry wanted to take a ride to Las Cruces to pick up something for his RV so I went with. Something to do. We ended up going a little farther to Camping World so a round trip of somewhere near 150 miles, give or take.
Back east I could go to about any kind of store I wanted and not be gone much more than a couple of hours, not so out here in the west!
Pictures: I once took a walk to the top of Wheeler Peak, the highest point in NM. About 5 to 6 years ago. The critters on top where about as friendly as could be.
Marmot, begging for food.
Chipmunk begging for food, Standing on my shoe and yes my foot was still in it!
Volunteering: My friend Barry and I took out a very large Pack Rats nest here at the RV Park today. We have at least two or three more big ones to take out. Not a fan of Pack Rats!
Pictures: Wild Sunflowers, I see lots of these in the west. I dug out an old lens that I have had for years, a old and cheap 50mm but I did get a few good shots with it, like these.
Exercise: I walked a couple of miles today.
Pictures: Wild Flowers.

Pictures: A thistle and a wild flower.
Thistle, looks like a little pollen has been carry to the top and a few ants hanging around on the bottom.
Exercise: ✅ I got a couple of miles done this morning.
State Park: This weekend the park was very busy, more so than usual. I guess folks are thinking about the last of the summer before kids are back in school and taking the opportunity to enjoy some summer fun with the kids. The fire restrictions have been lifted here in the park and folks are allowed to have fires in the fire-rings, so it was a smoky weekend 🌫🌫♨🌫🌫 ❗
Pictures: Three more wild flower shots and one with a spider which I did not see till I was doing my post processing.
Exercise: ✅ Normal two-mile walk.
Pictures: Couple shots taken while walking in the Canyon a day or so ago.

This is my kind of parking!
