Datil Wells Camp Ground

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.

Hot

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!

Once up on a Walk

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.

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!

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 🌫🌫♨🌫🌫 ❗
