Update from the mountains

We're spending the Memorial Day weekend near Heron Lake in the mountains of northern New Mexico. Friday we had a late lunch/early dinner with Carol Anne's folks in Los Alamos. After arriving at the cabin, we watched movies into the wee hours.

Saturday I ran errands into Chama and hung around the lake. The paving still has not been completed on the roads to the boat ramps and is now scheduled for next week. Although the boat ramps can be accessed (during dry weather) on a limited basis, most power boaters and owners of smaller boats are using the primitive boat ramp at Ridge Rock.

A boating safety officer from the New Mexico state parks department was at the primitive ramp yesterday helping supervise the ramp and giving out safety info.

The New Mexico Sailing Club had planned to host its first regatta of the season and it appeared that six boats were racing.

Yesterday some mule deer passed through our yard.

Saturday late afternoon we attended a spaghetti dinner at Shroyer Center, the community center for our neighborhood.

Weather has been cooler lately, with rain and clouds, so we got a nice fire going in our fireplace last night and have kept it going.

If I get at all ambitious and it doesn't rain too much, I'll put a kayak in the water and perhaps get some photos.
