We left the house three times I think and later than we planned. We forgot things and just piddled away the time. By the time we left, about 12:30 p.m., it was sprinkling. We drove on and it really rained by Hurley. We decided to go to the State Park anyway and look around and plan for another day.
It quit raining by the time we got there. Gene hiked around a bit and I took out my pastels. I painted about an hour before it started to rain. I painted on a piece of used paper that was torn, so painted on the good part.
We go through Deming when we go to the dentist in Palomas. It is not much of a town, out on the flats. It is on Interstate 10 but has beautiful mountains in sight.
