two fawns feeding on the road to camp.

In the wee hours of tomorrow morning, 0330, I'll be joining a venture crew for a road trip to an airport 2 hours west to board a 0730 flight that will carry us ultimately to Albuquerque, NM.
We are scheduled to arrive there just after noon. After three days to allow us to acclimate to altitude we will depart Albuquerque for the Philmont BSA Ranch for ten days of hiking in the foothills of the Rocky mountains, During our trek we Will climb two mountains; The Tooth of Time, and Mount Phillips. That will put us up there around 10,000 feet. This trek will be a little less arduous than the trek we did there three years ago there, but will still provide a rewarding challenge. Truly a wilderness adventure there will be no tech gadgets in attendance.
That means that I'll be shutting down the microscope for two weeks~ give or take~
The down side to this trip for me is that I'll miss two weeks with my grand daughters. The last two weeks with them have been nothing less than a huge joy! For those of you who want to keep up with there activities with their grandma Diane, you can go here to stay current with the rest of munchkins NY vacation.
If God is willing and the creek doesn't rise, I'll be back in to weeks to give you a glimpse of Philmont; under the microscope.

Found your blog by the Black Box.
Know the area of Alburquerque fairly well; very breathtaking! Watch out for snakes and Thunderstorms as it is "monsoon season" in the mountains of New Mexico! If you are on a guided hike, then your guide will already know of these things...above all have a great time!!
