I always feel rejuvenated when I get to spend some time in the mountains. Brace yourself I took a few… ok, a lot of pictures…
I went to the city in the clouds.. also known as Cloudcroft NM.
I took my little rv to a place called Cool Pines.. the park was set in…. you guessed it… pine trees! Yes, it was nice and cool too. There was no WiFi and that’s ok by me… but truthfully there wasn’t anything special about this little rv park. We were parked in space 11, yeah my favorite number, however, the guy on his little cart parked us a bit too far up then was all yeah, maybe that’s too far up. Ya think? Then as he was leaving tells the guy behind us, who I had already waved at, and he had waved back, burying his nose back into his phone, she’s got dogs…. he responded with, I got your number… irritated… that was me.
So I set up, all the while ignoring my not so kind neighbor. Who by the way had a huge older dog himself.
Ok…. shake it off and just enjoy… which I did. I drove into town for a couple things.. and I walked into the Kings treasure, it’s a thrift store in Cloudcroft. This book caught my attention and so of course I bought it. Glad I did. I read it in its entirety before coming home. It had been awhile since I got so into a book. Something else had been my focus. That is done and gone.
The RV always gets a bit of attention. Even in these days of social distancing. A very sweet couple from Austin Tx stopped by as they were out walking their pup. We talked about their rig and mine. They said they will be checking out the place mine came from since it was the city they were from. Lol. When I told them I had planned on a hike to a waterfall, they promptly told me, Oh no we are not hikers 😂.
I spent the evening on my love seat, outside, under the pines with my trusty companions. Oh, and I picked up a cute little bottle this lady in town told me was good stuff.
Reading… just enjoying the quiet and coolness of the day.
I almost forgot about the parade… every evening a bunch of turkeys would go by. Cuteness!
The next day was the hike. It was a beautiful place.
The top of the waterfall was just as beautiful…
The flowers were beautiful as well as everywhere!
On the way back to camp, I stopped at a little place that had some amazing veggie hoagies.. ahh dinner and a book.. who could ask for more.
After a couple of cool evenings it was time to go back to reality.
This is the cutest place. Fresh fruit, jams, ciders and lots of other homemade goodies.
It was a wonderful time…
I hope you are happy.. enjoying each and every minute of life.
This here rebel Raq took off to check out the great outdoors..
Ok, so lately I have broken my wrist, fallen a couple times and let’s just say graceful hasn’t been in my vocabulary.
I was a little worried and excited about taking off on my own this morning. So I got all ready wrapped my wrist, sunglasses, keys and off I go! A few miles in I realized I forgot my helmet! Oh and ID? Nope nada. Had my phone, headphones and some coconut water. Oh well I figured if I fall it’s not usually my head that takes the hit. I know, the way my luck has been running it would be the first thing to hit the pavement… lol
Took it easy and just enjoyed myself.
Going to enjoy this trail all I can for now. There was quite a fire near here yesterday so there is still some smoke in the air as you can see in the pics.
This song came on and I could swear it was my trusty steed (bike) singing to me! 😉
So the rest of the day will be packing boxes and this song sola, solita in the head .. lol
