Slowing Down


June 1, 2017

After 3 hard days of driving from Nashville we needed to stay put.  We are in Taos, NM.  I don’t think we can call this camping.  We are staying for 10 nights at an RV Park in town.  This stay is a repeat from last year.  But I really like this area and am forcing Leslie and Rex to like it also.

This is different for us.  We are used to moving every 3 or 4 days and being in the thick of nature.  Now it is road trips to the surrounding sights and easy food foraging.

Yesterday, we visited Ted Turner on his Vemejo Park Ranch (well maybe we only drove across a small part of the over 500,000 acres and never saw Ted or another vehicle).  I only hope he can protect it from the fate I fear for our beautiful Federal lands out West.  We saw elk, pronghorn, dear, bison and a large black bear.
