But now that our trip was curtailed on account of "woo woo feelings", I shall just have to build something on my own. Not waiting until whenever. The slave labor that is available here at Casa de Cuckoo are going to get a schooling in DIY Linda style.
So on to the animal life we saw on our trip. At the VLA we saw a herd of something on the horizon. The closer we got the more we thought that the herd of Angus cows pastured on the VLA property had been joined by ????????? sheep, goats. No, it was a herd of pronghorn antelope, with their cute little white butt cheeks flashing in the air. There must have been at least 100 in the herd and at one point, they covered the horizon line. This picture is not very good but it does show some of the animals.
Some foxes near the intersection of NM60 and I25. A coyote pair near the turnoff for lunch at San Antonio and lots of crows/ravens everywhere we went. Must be the crows time to move for the winter. Of course horses, cows, goats, sheep, chickens, pigs and even some of my adored favorites donkeys were spotted in the Belen/Los Lunas area. A small herd of buffalo near Isleta Casino and once again the V's of the migrating geese and ducks. We scored big time on the animal spotting.
Back to lunch, we got a wonderful green chile cheeseburger at Chef Bob's place the Buckhorn Tavern in San Antonio. Chef was busy putting up the holiday decorations so we only had a brief visit. Just love his burgers. And then we drove back to 'Burque and missed the idiot 4 o'clock crash fest traffic.
