I bought a couple of large storage containers at Target, to put non-perishable food items in for my trip to the desert. Now that statement there, requires a bit of explanation so let me add…I am also getting the storage container up here between my ears, filled with new fun facts so that I can know about where I’m going, what to expect weather wise, and not show up needing to drive to some far off town to buy all the stuff that I didn’t think of because I didn’t do my research. At 5000 feet above sea level in October in the high desert, I may need a a few items I’m not using here at home. Light jacket, warmer coat, tall boots, hoodie…
Can you tell I’m excited?
Fourteen days till departure. I have figured my gas money and my route. I know approximately where I will spend the night on the way up. Artesia, New Mexico will have a spot to camp. I am sure of it. Unless the weather is bad, I would always rather camp. Hot tea on my one burner stove, sitting in the cool morning air…will it happen that way? I hope so.
This week the Photo Challenge theme is: Near and Far
This bug was so interesting to observe up close. The background is far away…I like his orange lips. Do bugs have lips?
