Get well soon, Ragi!

Today at around 2 p.m.; Ragi – my brewing partner and friend for over 35 years (seen here wearing a really ugly shirt and complaining about something) was wheeled into an operating room and got himself a new pair of lungs. He has a long road of recovery but the operation went without a hitch. Now we wait to see if the lungs will cooperate. I’m amazed at the strides medicine has made but also at the courage that he and his family have shown during all of this. Tonight I’m drinking a good IPA and toasting my buddy.

May Cloudandsunsetstravaganza!

Thanks to a wet weather pattern, the clouds have been very “saucy” (a term used by a USFS weatherman during last year’s fire). Haven’t had time to post, so here is a mega time lapse, super duper, loooooong post. The first time lapse shows the backwards and forwards clouds racing over the mountains. And that for me is a joy to film!

End of April skies

A collection of clouds, virga, sunsets, the moon and a few time lapses (the bottom one looks like a forest fire, ulp).

First hummers, jays and sleepy cat.

The hummingbirds are starting to appear while the jays are less abundant. And Marley is sleepy, very, very sleeeeeeepy.

Trip to the Pecos 4_18_23

I traveled up to the Pecos River to see how it was running after this year’s ample snowfall. It was fast and high but not flooding like other rivers in Northern New Mexico have been. Along the way, I stopped at the little church near Apache Canyon as well as one of the sections of the Civil War Battle of Glorieta.

Salinas Pueblo Missions 4_17_23

Because the winds were forecast to blow upwards of 60 mph on my birthday, we decided to visit a new place earlier in the week. The missions at the pueblos of Quarai and Abó (near Manzano, NM) were built in the early 1600’s aside the pueblos that existed since the mid 1100s. They are also called the “Salt Missions” due to the abundance of the mineral in the nearby dry lake beds. The missions and pueblos were abandoned in the 1670s due to drought and raiding Apaches.
