We've had a real busy week but took no pictures. Besides cleaning our living area carpet, we went to two musseum.
On Tuesday afternoon we visited the Otero County Museum located at the Visitor's Center and by the Chamber of Commerce. It was a real nice free little museum which covered some of the history of this area. Old timers called it inhabitable - the land of cracked skin - with nothing here but cactus and rattlesnacks plus no water.
Then Thursday we went to the New Mexico Space Museum. It tooks us four hours to do it all including the IMAX theatre and the Planetarium show. It was all really nice. The museum is four stories with lots of space history - lots of it taking place right here in southern New Mexico. At the IMAX theatre they were showing the documentary, "Everest". It was about a group of people climbing Mt. Everest. Personally I think they were a little crazy. Then we also saw the Planetarium show on the planets. Everything was all very good. There is alot of outside exhibition stuff which we didn't really have time to explore. I guess we'll have to go back another day and do that. You can see this stuff without having to pay again. It was a very enjoyable afternoon.
Then last night, the owners of the park here took us out to eat at a very nice Mexican restaurant. We ate things we had never had before. The food was very good and the evening very enjoyable. James and Cindy are really great people and if you're ever out this way stop and spend a night or two with them - Boot Hill RV resort between Alamogordo and Tularosa.
It is hard to believe that our time is almost half over here. And our list of things to see and do is still very long. However, we do not believe that the dry climate here agrees us. We're actually missing the humidity back east. We both have fingers cracked open and they're sore. I have my right thumb and that makes it difficult to type.
So, until next time ----
