Tuesday, March 8, City of Rocks State Park, Faywood, NM, Day 2 - 0 Miles, 4,911.6 Miles for the Trip

While a cold night, I bundled up & went out for a few star photos. A few lights from other campers as well as a quarter moon made for some problems, but I did get something:

The "Star Circle" was a 1 hour, 10 minute exposure at f/5.6 & ISO 200. The rest of the nighttime images were 20 second exposures @ f/4.5 & ISO of 2500. To fill out the table I added a couple of photos of the rocks around my trailer I took this afternoon.

A cold morning walk. My neighbor said his thermometer showed 23°F; my outside thermometer stuffed in the ladder storage box showed a low of 32°F. In either case, a cold walk. The wind that died down yesterday was back during the morning, but has stopped now (around 11:30). We have predictions for high winds tomorrow & Thursday.

After breakfast I changed the sheets, read for a bit then headed to Deming to do laundry.

Dinner was a Lean Cuisine Mushroom & Spinach Pizza cooked in the microwave. Better than I expected for pizza from a microwave.

Until Tomorrow -
