Snow and Wind, Rockhound State Park, Deming, NM

We arrived at Rockhound State Park near Deming, NM yesterday and it is a beautiful place.



To our south and east of the campground are mountains which I believe are called Florida Mountains. To your west is a broad flat plain which includes Deming. We are on a slope of the Little Florida with beautiful views.

The last few days it has been pretty windy. We are under a winter weather advisory today with winds allegedly gusting to the 50’s and possibly higher.

We awoke this morning to this.




It’s noon and the sun has returned yet again and other than snow in the higher mountains it has disappeared here but not the wind. That will hopefully clear up as they day wears on. That has been one of the great things about New Mexico. It has rarely been cloudy and almost always comes and goes in a day, at least so far.

We will probably be here for a week. I got Gayle a dental appointment for valentines this Saturday in Palomas, Mexico. Just a cleaning, who says I am not romantic? Along the U.S./Mexican border there is quite an industry for dentists, opticians and pharmacies catering to Americans. From what we have been able to gather from people who have used these services they are very good and the prices are amazing. For example, crowns costing $150.
