Tuesday, January 7, 2020 - La Posa West LTVA, Quartzsite, AZ, Day 30 - 0 Miles, 3,894.2 Miles for the Trip

A quiet, uninteresting night! It is still getting quite cool overnight, it was down to 34°F last night, but by the time I went to the 76 station for coffee at 9:00 it was 45°F, and by mid afternoon, 69°F. Partly cloudy, but they are thin enough that the batteries were full by noon.

I did quite a bit of reading, both on the computer & my Kindle, where the first of my library books resided - Lee Child's Blue Moon, a Jack Reacher novel. Most series have a relatively short life, but the Reacher series by Child seems to hold up. My all time favorite series is John D. MacDonald's Travis McGee series. I read them one by one as they came out, then years later, binged the entire 21 book series. He also wrote some great SiFi, including Ballroom of the Skies  & the The Girl, the Gold Watch, & Everything. I also enjoyed Condominium.

I spent a couple of minutes testing the new settings on the D850. While they work well for shooting fast moving birds, I have to revert to my usual settings for landscape. You can set up as many as 4 groups of settings so that with a simple push of a button, switch between them. Here are some of today's photos:


After that it was more sitting outside in the sun (well partially in the shade) relaxing.

Dinner was left over stew.

Until Next Time -
