Dina and I left TorC Monday afternoon and camped in Pancho Villa State Park in Columbus, NM. It was cooold....29 * ....now in Roper Lake State Park, AZ for maybe a couple of nights....I am enjoying it and there are some good walks to take with D.
The sun is out and the skies are clear but they tell me it was 27* this AM so we got a plugin for the stay here.....just a little heat is always nice....showers here and a park hot spring if I can steel my resolve to go take a dip...the wind is bitter and when you get out....hmm, sounds familiar...oh yeah, last time Kit and I camped here we did it and it was tough to enjoy when the wind is blowing.
Mount Graham is big and snowy on it's flanks but I am nice and sun-warmed as I sit and type....nice to have phone and internet connection here.
I left in a bit of a hurry to avoid the blowby from a couple of friends and their painful divorce but am glad I had that as an impetus to boost me along the way. It is only a week or two ahead of when I would have left anyway.
Now I hope to meet up with some of my Vandweller and VanTramp friends along the way as I move west. Move west and north as the time passes. I would love to take a ramble up the Pacific coast since it has been ages since I have been along much of it.
Recently I started the Course In Miracles and it will be a pleasent companion along with my sketch book. If I can ever shut up long enough to do either...jeez I am SO social.
Anyway...I will try and blog more on this trip as well.
