March 13, 2017 - Finney Lake CA

We camp for a few days on wildlife management agency land.  No fee and splendid isolation.  Perhaps too quiet.  We worry a bit about security and would hate to return and find the rig trashed.  On the other hand there is silence as the sun sets across the lake and blackbirds come to roost. 

March 8, 2017 - Warm in Gila Bend AZ

Yesterday in Patagonia we experienced quite a temperature swing.  28 degrees at dawn and 78 degrees at 3 p.m.  Layers do work, but the hike we took up a canyon started out freezing despite that.

I sit in the low key but very pleasant college library here at Portales.  We stopped to use the Internet and to find out how we can see any Clovis artifacts despite the excavation site and museum being closed, closed, and closed.  We will probably get to see a few but only after lots of jawboning.
