I took a couple of sunset photos last night and added them to today's page. Sure wish the moon would hurry up and reach the new moon phase so I can take some decent star photos. Then again, it is cold enough here at night that it is just as well that I don't have to stand outside in the dark

While I had zero towing miles today I did put 89.2 on the RAV 4. I went to Silver City to do laundry, and while there, got a haircut. I thought about driving north to Gila Cliff Dwellers National Monument, but discovered a sign along the road that said it was a 2 hour drive, it closed at 4:00PM, and it was already 1:30. I also looked at the National Parks Service webpage & it states that flooding destroyed many of the trails in the park. I guess I'll save it for later or the next trip. Since I was in the area, I decided to find a Ghost Town a little way outside of Silver City shown on my AAA map. I don't know if the Santa Rita Ghost Town still exists, but I sure didn't find it. I did find a huge copper mine about where the map said the ghost town was located. The mine was big enough that I took a panorama of it. There is a large 2.9MB version that you can click on if you have a fast connection.

After that it was back to City of Rocks. I seem to have a pretty good Verizon connection here (no AT&T) so I spent some time catching up on email & reading some of the RV & photography web pages I like to visit.

Until tomorrow -
