He did have a fun day on Tuesday though. We took him with us on a re-exploration of the area along Reddington Pass Road. Last year we followed Jodee and Bill along this beautiful dirt road, but didn't take Lewis. Then we only went as far as Race Track Tank before heading home, so Tuesday I had grand plans to drive it's unpaved length all the way to San Miguel. Looked doable on the map so off we went.

We found the road conditions to have deteriorated since our last trip and it was slow going for the Jeep. It took us about 3 hours to travel about 15 miles so we realized that we were not going to be able to finish the entire drive....my bad.
So instead we concentrated on enjoying what we were seeing, getting out for a few nice long walks with Lewis and some surprising wildlife sightings.
|we ignored these warnings - don't judge.....|
|no signs warning us of huge bulls in the area however.....|
|my Merlin bird app tells me this is, once again, a Red Tail|
|lots of birds taking advantage of this drying tank|
|a troop of 15 Coatimundi!!!!!!|
|feet off the ground speed!|
So, in the spirit of giving you a picture of what we've been doing this week, in reverse, here is a picture of a lovely Happy Hour we enjoyed at MonaLiza and Steve's site last weekend....
|Steve, MonaLiza, Mr. David, moi, Pam,|

Here's one more, we had such a pleasant time talking with old and new friends that Steve had to pull out the "fire pit" to chase away the night time chill.
Hope you all had a good Valentine's Day!
