My sunset last night was rather plain but nonetheless represented the end of another day on this earth that I was fortunate enough to be a part of.
I spent a very peaceful night last night, of course by comparison after sleeping in a Walmart parking lot everyplace else is quiet. Not that some noise keeps me awake, because it doesn't, I'm just more relaxed when it's quiet.
The winds were pretty calm this morning while walking around the campground, but by 10 o'clock it was starting to get a little breezy already. And as I've mentioned many times before I don't like wind and never have, and other than a benefit to kites and sailboats I would just as soon it went away.
I've decided to stay here at Valley of the Fires until next Monday. I just noticed on my calendar this morning that this coming weekend is Cinco de Mayo, and since I'm in a predominantly Hispanic area of the country, and I'm unaware as to how Cinco de Mayo is celebrated, I figured I would stand pat just in case it's a, fill up every state Park in New Mexico so I can't find a place to stay, kind of holiday.
This is the main road that runs through the campground. Just up the hill there's a loop where you turn around and head back out the way you came in.
