I think the Apache must have been great birdwatchers. Their Bosque is outstanding.
I have been here before but it did not work out very well, https://thequietripple.com/2019/01/07/the-apache-curse/
This time the weather is perfect. I stay in a campsite about 5 miles from the reserve. It has flat ground, tables and little noise. It is however extremely cold. Thank God my heater is working in the camper otherwise I would have been found Scott-like. The mornings are tough as without gloves it its impossible to operate, yet with gloves, it is impossible to make coffee due to clumsiness.
I take photos of birds.
I stay for 3 wonderful days. Tomorrow, I negotiate the Mexican border. I hope they let me in!
Delightful photos my rugged friend! Hope you made it into Mexico so the saga can continue.
