City of Rocks State Park, NM, Day 4

Looking North
Wednesday, March 2, 2016, City of Rocks State Park, NM, Day 4, 0 Miles, 4,615.2 Miles for the Trip

Another mild, but windy day at City of Rocks. Lots of new arrivals - this end (as well as all of the electric sites) are full. I didn't do much other than sit around ducking the wind & trying to read. Lots of dust in the air stirred up by the wind gusts. While most of the place is rocks, there is enough fine sand to put a coating on everything.

I did get out to take a couple of photos last night. It didn't clear up as much as the previous nights.  One more image (a 2 hour exposure with the D800) at today's LakeshoreImages page.

I did make use of the last day of my Jetpack cycle to do some downloads. I was at 16GB this morning so I had 4GB to use. Unfortunately, it is a bit slow since all I currently have is a 3G connection. Off & on it switches to 4G, although the 3G is just about as fast.

Dinner is planned to be spaghetti & meatballs, but unless the wind dies down I'm not sure I could get the water to boil on the camp stove. It usually calms down around 5:00, so I'll wait until then to decide. There is always soup cooked on the stove in the trailer.

Until tomorrow -
