Heading to Houston

On Thursday, March 29th, we met friends Bryon and Marsha and Melissa to trek across Arizona and New Mexico to Texas.  Later start than usual, around 9:30 am.  But on the road and made it to Safford for the night.  Able to get a walk in that night and also the next morning.  Bob didn't feel good on the way here, so just parked and went to bed.  Ok the next morning and ready to hit the road again.  Our goal was a National Forest Campground close to Glenwood, NM.  Made it.

We met up wit…

The next morning, we headed to hike down to Captain Cook's Monument.  Only 3 miles down and then of course 3 miles back up (1500 ft. incline)  At the bottom,  we snorkeled in the small bay there.


Did great, but on the hike back up, I really got sick.  It took an hour to go down, but 4 to come back up since I had to lay down every 50 or 100 ft.   I guess with the travel, the drinks the night before, and the snorkeling in cold water, it just didn't sit well.   We had plenty of water, poured it all over my head and everything, but no snacks.  The next morning I was fine.  We took a whale watching trip on that d…
