Take a hike

Today was a beautiful, warm, mostly sunny, day and I got a hankering to hike the 3 miles up to the line cabin on the Dog Canyon Trail. It's a nice hike and it's been a couple years since I was last up there and I wanted to make the hike before I head over to Leasburg Dam State Park, Radium Springs NM for a while.

So off I went.

That picture up there is looking back down canyon at the Tularosa Basin from the Second Bench about 2-/2 miles in and 1,500 feet up from the campground {I stuck a pin in my Night Camps map}. Phew - I'm not used to this!

To prepare mice, you have to first thaw them out and pull the skins off and the guts out. Then you wash them, bread them carefully, and braise them lightly in olive oil in the black skillet.
