Best of March

 

Aw, winter months!  The world looks far different when it’s covered in white and cold.

Taken with my cell phone on a morning after after a long night at work.

Perspective. 

Remy and Storm. 

Remy is our resident flirt and Storm was our “big dog” for 15 years.  She wasn’t a jump on the couch when we were there, but she did like to stick her nose up over the edge and give you “that look”.

This is Emerson.  Emerson has the best smile.

2016

2016 brought me back to New Mexico, a job fell through, and back I went.  Not to northern NM, but more south. 

No.  Snow!

So this guy!  I was staying at an RV site, what had tiny cabins (awesome deal, btw!!) – and caught a glimpse of something behind my car before taking off for a day of exploring.  You got it – a peacock!

Space museum – a cool afternoon, and a wicked looking building – the reflection was great!  I never got around to going there at sunset.

Some hiking pics – an old 1800s train track – and the Carlsbad Caverns (which was cool!)

My romantic wife sent me flowers and, of course, that I had to take a picture.

Tourist Time, Alamogordo, NM

I began my morning not having even grabbed my Rebel.  I get in my car, look into the rearview mirror and see this blob of blue.  I dashed back to the cabin and got my Rebel.  Never leave home without it. 

A peacock.

Then the World’s Largest Pistachio.  Nuff Said

The Space Museum was very cool.  A lot of reading, and history.  And huge machines.  Those engines are monstrous.

You are never quite sure what man is capable of until you see it for yourself.

I’ve always loved space.  Star Wars, Star Trek, 2001 a Space Odyssey.  I can stare at the sky for hours and hours.  I’ve never believed that we are alone in the word, that would be arrogant.

The fun thing is that some of this stuff looks like its from a bad sci-fi movie.  It isn’t.  It was the actual working components used by NASA. 

I didn’t take a picture, but there is also a section on Disney and George Lucas, which I thought was very cool.  They have a small gift shop and everything is reasonably priced.
