Prior to arriving I had slept 2 hours on Tuesday and 4 on Wednesday...I was running on fumes. I do not drink coffee very often but on long trips it is a must. As usual I was a jittery mess when I arrived because of it. I had high hopes of sleeping through the night but I was wide awake by 4:30 a.m.
Sunrise in Terlingua....
As soon as the sun was up I took to the task of setting up my camp. I really and truly considered not setting up the tent only the shower shelter. Why oh why do I ignore my gut feelings? Now I am getting ahead of myself...you will have to wait to a future post.
After I finished setting up camp I heard a helicopter and thought that perhaps it was one of the news channels from the Midland/Odessa area that come to cover the event. Later found out that it was a medical chopper...someone had had an accident.
I took a lot of pictures and I obviously can not fit them all into one post. If you are new to my blog, I am "computer challenged"...to compensate for this I try to change my header picture every day and display a new photo unless I do not have access to the internet.
I think this is an accident waiting to happen...but oh well, you do a lot of dumb things when you are young!!!
Even though I have never been to Burningman in the Nevada desert...I could not help but picture all the naked people that run after the water truck hoping to get a free bath :D
From my camp trying to zoom in to what is going on at Krazy Flats.
In the evening there is nothing better than enjoying the company of your friends around a nice campfire along with a cold adult beverage.
Stay tuned for more stories from the Chihuahuan desert and pictures to back them up.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
