Geocaching and other moving-around in Catron County -- (Datil, New Mexico)

I remembered an old hobby and got excited! GPS! Outdoors! Finding stuff! First stop: Datil Well campground, where I found a new friend (Kathryn) and nothing else. We chatted for about three hours while we stood around, so when it was time to get in my car, I forgot how to bend my knees.













This is the Baldwin Cabin Public Library. I've seen many a cute library, but it would be a challenge to find one cuter. [Oh Mom, I'm NOT CUTE.] In addition to being cute, it stocks an impressive collection of books and DVDs. 

You can even blow the stink off outside.
After a brisk morning and afternoon of moving around, Betty frog-marched me on a hike to see some stupid awesome thing. You need to click on the picture. Click it. Do I ask so much? 


San Agustin Plains, New Mexico
CLICK IT

Finally, Betty sat down to let me rest.



Today I accomplished a long-standing goal of curtains. A flicker pecked on every window to protest impeded views.

I also hung up some little solar/USB LED lights around the inside of the cabin. It's a little early for Christmas, but it's never too early for pretty.

Great picture of the old barn:) Still trying to get excited about the geocaching thing.

Ha! Well, if you're still trying, it's probably okay to stop trying.

Thanks, Jo!

It's nice to have a chat for hours. Good old barn. Beautiful library and bench. Have a nice time...

They say the first to go is the memory but I thought it was the knees. So I guess "they" are right if you forgot how to bend your knees. I had no idea you were that old.

I can recall bending my knees in the summer of aught-nine...

Thanks, Weekend!

The library is definitely cute (Mom is always right) - and small enough to smell like books I imagine! Beautiful country to get out and look for/find stuff. Love the old fence and benches.

Good Luck Duck said...

I will have to sniff with that in mind, Jodee.

You made me do it! I clicked and yes that is a cute library.

Good Luck Duck said...

Thanks, George.

Right, Contessa? Cute.

Barbara Lane said...

You made me click too, and I was smiling when I did it. : )

Good Luck Duck said...

Barbara, thank goodness I still have some shred of authority around this place!

So... did you find the hidden cache?

Good Luck Duck said...

Two out of three, Sharon. That one remains elusive.
