Dawn at Clayton Lake, Clayton Lake State Park, Clayton NM, May 2, 2010
I like this park - a lot. Even if there is no Verizon cell or internet service. Even in the light of the internet withdrawal I'm suffering. This is a very attractive, quiet park. There is some good walks - over the dam or at the other extreme way down through the rocks and pastures to the upstream inlet end of the lake. There's even a bunch of huge fossil dinosaur footprints to muse over.
I'll be back. Indeed I think I'll stay tomorrow and extend my just-passing-through a bit. Yeah. This sure beats run-down Tucumcari or a Walmart somewhere.

One's brain is powerfully activated by learning that there are only 30,000 genes in the human genome. That is only twice as many as in the fruit fly, not renowned for its calculating ability, and about as many as a garden weed. Geneticists are sorely vexed that so few genes are required to make something as complex and clever as a geneticist.
