Farmington, NM, USA - 5th July 2007

By: wourpet

Here I am in Farmington, New Mexico.  I missed out on the Freedom Days parade last night but I have had a bit of an adventure on my arrival.  My host has a large dog that looks -- well, looks very much like me.  I thought it might be good to have our picture together and squished down my fears (we know I haven't many) and sidled over to him and who would have guessed but he ran away.  I guess he has truly recognized what a brave adventurer I am but it may take awhile for me to get him calmed down  I'll be back with a picture of the two of us in a bit.

I've done it! I've tamed him.  Now I would like you to look closely because we do look quite the same -- except he's a little bit bigger.
Now I'm going to rest and get ready to go camping in the mountains -- it sounds like there could be plenty of adventure there.

Trinidad, Colorado, USA - 7th July 2007

By: wourpet

I got back to my host's house today from a really adventurous camping trip through the mountains and into southeast Colorado.  I toured old ghost towns and even went down into a volcano in New Mexico.  This picture is of me while I was climbing back up to the rim.  I have so much to update and so many pictures but I need a bit of rest first.

La Plata, NM, USA - 7th July 2007

By: wourpet

Our mission started at Farmington but it was once we passed La Plata on highway 64 that it started to get interesting.  We drove through some very rugged country with arroyos, hoodoos and mountains.  There were even old lava flows in places and cinders in other places.

Trinidad Lake State Park, Colorado, USA - 8th July 2007

By: wourpet

It was quite fun learning we would be camped on a mesa above the lake.  I had plenty of interesting places to explore around the campground -- including this old rock well.  I wanted to climb down into it but my host didn't think it was a good idea.

Cokedale, CO, USA - 9th July 2007

By: wourpet

The little town of Cokedale is a former mining town and across the road are all the rows and rows of ovens where they cooked the coal. They are now on private property so I wasn't allowed to actually explore inside the old ovens.

Ludlow, CO, USA - 10th July 2007

By: wourpet

This was the site of the Ludlow Massacre and there is a monument here.  The really exciting part for me was the old mining car.  Just like the ones Indiana Jones jumped about on.

Not too far from the site of the massacre was the old Ludlow station -- a ghost town now.

I decided we should see more ghost towns so we headed down the road to several other old mining towns.

Can you believe this?!! Its an actual old 'hoosegow' or jailhouse.  And it even has one of the bars pulled up.

Back at the campground I made sure and updated my journals and my mission book.  I have one more mission I will be going on before we get back to Farmington, NM.

Capulin, NM, USA - 13th July 2007

By: wourpet

After a 2 mile drive up to the rim of the old volcano I was able to get out and peer down into the crater.  I was standing on a pile of cinder cones that make the huge mound we call the volcano.  After that I descended down into the crater to the core of the volcano.  This particular volcano spewed ash and fire from the core but the lava flowed out through vents on the side.  This is why we were able to walk down into the core.  It was quite a little hike coming back out and stopped to have picture taken a number of times as we climbed.



Once I even got a bit far behind



It was nice to be back on the rim looking down.

Farmington, NM, USA - 21st July 2007

By: wourpet

I've been back in Farmington a few days now but today I was invited along for a drive into town.  I was astounded at the exciting possibilities I discovered just down the road.  These caves are so close and they MUST have something interesting to discover in them.  I asked my host to please, please let me wander down and investigate.  She was on her own mission at the time and wasn't able but she has promised that before I leave I will be able to investigate at least one of the caves.

Farmington, NM, USA - 25th July 2007

By: wourpet

Well I have finally made it to the caves.  It was rather a hike getting into them and with the wind blowing my hat off I decided to leave it in the truck.  On the long hike through the sand dunes to the caves I found some tracks.  At first I thought they might be from the beast Charlie but on closer inspection I decided they were deer tracks.


Inside the cave wasn't quite as spectacular as I thought it might be and it was somewhat unsettling having tons of mountain looming overhead.  I tried climbing the cave walls to a few little hidey-holes but finally decided there were no treasures to be found.  In fact there was a fair amount of trash and broken bottles.




It was an interesting mission all the same.

Here is one more picture of the cave -- this was one was taken while I was standing inside the cave. 


On the hike back out to the truck I chanced across what looked like a very small cave.  My host told me now to put my nose in it to far because it was a burrow of some sort and I might spook the occupant.


When we got back to my hosts house she gathered all of us together for a photo.  It was great having all my new friends together.  They aren't all Toy Voyagers but I think some of them might join us. 


In the picture are Aunt Flora and the twins Petal and Blossom, Budd, Blanche, Rosa, me, Stinger and a bear whom I don't think I have even met.  Oh, and the rather large prickly one is a very big hedge hog.

Of course the beast Charlie wanted in on the photo but he was still a little leary about getting too close to me -- so we compromised.


So now I have said my goodbyes to all the other visitors and residents here and tomorrow I will be on my way to Festus, Missouri where I am looking forward to a visit with SkylerDragon

I have had a lot of exciting adventures in Colorado and New Mexico while I was here.
