Dusk time on the Rio Grande in T or C

The Rio Bravo, just a shadow of it’s previous flow, but still stately in places. Although not as blue as the sky reflecting off the surface, it was filled with life, carp surfacing, Red Wing Black birds, Barn Swallows, and Neoropic Cormorants all dancing and skimming across the surface. A brown lab chasing a tennis ball time and again for the joy of self,master, and me. A truly peaceful time held in by reflections of life, past and the river and sky. It feels like you could drift with this for hours.

Reflect on what is and yet to be on your journey†††nada te turbe††††††††jim

Photo of Da day @ Da Pine #301.Ah, motor on in to the “Rocket Inn!”

Shades of the 50’s & 60″s with a Route 66 feel. Actually it is a couple hundred miles south of  the mother road and in Truth or Consequences, NM. We are soaking in the hot springs. T or C was formerly named Hot Springs NM, but changed their name via a contest put on by popular early television game show hosted by Ralph Edwards.

We are staying at the absolutely coolest place in T or C: Blackstone Springs http://www.blackstonehotsprings.com/. This is an old tourist court, that has been throughly updated and all the rooms have a television show theme. We are staying in the Roy Rogers suite which is nice as I got to see Roy Rogers in person at a rodeo in the early 50’s in West TX when I was 5 or 6 . I still have an autographed photo of Roy & Trigger……cool beans

This was an 8 second exposure, 200iso @ f22 with a 200mm lens and a Nikon D300s, made  about 9-10:00 in the evening.

Always look for the remembrance of something old on your journey†††nada te turbe†††jim
