Clouds over the story Lake State Park camping area.
The weather wasn't too bad today, it was a little breezy but not the blow your hat into the lake kind of winds we've been having.
I went into town today and looked around for a while. I wanted to take some pictures of the old buildings that are scattered around town but since it was a weekday it was harder to get around and hard to find a parking place so I wasn't able to take as many pictures as I'd hoped. I think my idea of doing all that on a Sunday works better than anything else.
It's been getting pretty chilly around here lately. For the next few days it's supposed to be below freezing at night and on Saturday there actually predicting snow. That's not something I really want to hear but there's not much I can do about it. The winds are still supposed to be high until then. And I wouldn't want to pull the Arctic Fox anywhere with all of that going on. I'm sure heading north wouldn't help me at all, and I hate to backtrack and head south again. So it looks like I'll just hunker down, try to find where I put my thermal underwear, and wait for it to blow over next week.
One of the beautiful old buildings in downtown Las Vegas New Mexico. I'm not sure what it used to be but it looks like a hotel.
Buildings in the past were built to show the strength and status of the business within them. I guess that's why their character lives on far longer than the businesses they housed
This is one of the Carnegie libraries that were built all over the world with grant money from the incredibly wealthy Andrew Carnegie. This one is built in the middle of a city park in Las Vegas.The doors opened in 1904 and it's still an operating library.
