The Turtle And I (#374)

A couple of weeks in the Texas Panhandle where temperatures went from 85 degrees one day to 19 degrees the next…..and stayed in or around there, only having electric hookup for my RV and finally, finding out that all the rangers I had been friends with were no longer there.

All good enough reasons to go south and stay there.

Reached my destination in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.

The next day, warmer temps and an enchanted blue sky ~

Across the Rio Grande, Turtleback Mountain in the distance


Turtleback Mountain from the town of Truth or Consequences

 Turtle’s Head, facing left with its front foot splayed out, can be seen with the turtle’s shell making up the crest of the mountain

He looks very relaxed, at peace, restful.

The turtle and I….finally at rest.

Ever Grateful ~  Annie

    That certainly is a very turtley looking mountain. In my european ignorance I thought Texas was always hot but south is always best in the northern hemisphere at this time of year 🙂
    Belated birthday wishes for health and happiness, and if you’ve got those then you don’t need too much wealth. Here’s to another great year of travelling Annie, I’m raising a glass of rather nice Sauvignon to you 😀

    Hey Annie, If you have not been, check out Riverbend Hot Springs. You will LOVE it!

    Happy Birthday. I was watching HSN tv, there was nothing else to watch on TV. They had on this little electric heater that looks like a fire place.
    I asked my husband if I could buy it for our trailer. I pictured it sitting in there with the fake looking fire and thought it would be great to have. He said “Yuck.” I didn’t get it. But then again everything I see on there, I want to buy. But I think it is cute.

    Thank goodness for computers at the library! Got to read your new post and I just love the turtle back mountain. Looks exactly like a turtle! Missing you Anne. Glad you are warmer and safe.
