We have tried many new restaurants and developed some favorites. We had done quite a bit of sightseeing and enjoyed it all. We had spent time here in the coach, just taking it easy: sometimes working on our hobbies, sometimes reading or napping (a lot of that!), and sometimes taking care of paperwork.
Yesterday we went up about a half hour north of town to Three Rivers. There is a shop there that we assumed was a bit of a convenience store. But no, it was much more than that. Yes there was an aisle of things you might expect at a c-store, but the majority of the building contained southwest artwork, pottery, jewelry, rugs, etc. We picked up a few postcards and then headed out east about 5 miles to the Three Rivers Petroglyph Site. It was awesome! I haven't seen petroglyphs like that since I was a child and we visited northern New Mexico. I didn't hike all the way to the top of the site - there were about a dozen marked petroglyphs. I only made it up to site 3, but I was very happy to have made it that far. A year or two ago I wouldn't have even been able to do that! I was so appreciative that Roger was along and that I had my beautiful cane my cousin Barry made me. It was rough going for me - up was easier than down. I have some pictures to share from that experience. The volunteer in the visitor center was great as well - we chatted with him about his experiences "workamping" with BLM. Their space there looked pretty good. A bit in the middle of nowhere, but still a great spot.
Still more to do and see here in Alamogordo!
