Hmmmmm....for some reason, the day slipped away and there was no time for a Monday blog post. Recap: a morning tour, a quick Alpine run, and the usual great 241 night at the Starlight - and dessert at Cinta's beautiful home with some really great friends. Woke this morning to the sound of burros fighting outside my door. Benita was standing by looking perplexed at all the commotion. Fed everyone and all was well.
Got the motors I ordered to experiment with for the new camera panning mechanism. Did a water run to the Ghost Town just in case tonight's storm gets sucked into the vortex. All set to go with indoor projects in case of a downpour. Expecting at least some rain tonight and the winds are already picking up. Rather difficult to sleep with a windy overnight.
Stopped by to check out the old church in the Ghost Town for the first time with my upstate NY friend Kristinna.
