Moving up to City of Rocks
Today I needed to run some errands in Deming and decided to move up to City of Rocks. I've been at Rockhound State Park, Deming NM long enough to get just a tad bored with it and besides, there are more rigs here than sites and I thought I'd relieve the congestion just a bit and let someone else enjoy my Site 27 for a while.
With that excuse in place I moved. The real motivation comes from my finally getting around to adding some of the missing images to old pages here. I've been working on the City of Rocks pages (starting with March 6, 2008) the last few days and I'm reminded how photogenic the City of Rocks park is and how much I want to hang out here for a while.

I was afraid of flying for a long time and could only travel vicariously. When friends came back from faraway places, it wasn't just out of politeness that I asked what they saw. I really wanted to know. And I found the best way to get information out of them was to ask what surprised them. How was the place different from what they expected? This is an extremely useful question. You can ask it of the most unobservant people, and it will extract information they didn't even know they were recording.
