Big Change of Scenery
If I’ve been rather quiet so far this summer, it’s because big changes are afoot. A surprising opportunity arose, we will collect our U-Haul tomorrow, and this week we’re leaving Santa Fe for new environs. But I’m very pleased to report that those environs are full of spectacular scenery. The next post I write will be from our new home in Deep Springs Valley on the California-Nevada border, with the high Sierra looming to our west, Death Valley to the south, ancient bristlecone pines and the massive White Mountains just a few miles north, and best of all the vast seldom-visited hinterlands of Nevada stretching far and empty to the east. I’m certainly sad to be leaving New Mexico, and I have a lot of unfinished business in the wild country of my native state, but I expect many very good things to come. In the meantime, enjoy a few initial impressions of the place I will soon call home!
