Heron Lake State Park, New Mexico – Day 23

The motorhome is still parked at Heron Lake State Park, here in New Mexico.

I still need more rest and recuperation from my May 27th accident. My right ribcage area remains slightly swollen and tender to the touch. I’m still experiencing the occasional popping in my chest with the associated mild burning pain. I remain taking Ibuprofen, icing my ribcage area 2-3 times a day and wearing an elastic bandage abound my chest. The doctors told me to expect 6-12 weeks for recovery. The accident occurred six weeks and four days ago. Can you tell I’m ready for the recovery to be finalized?

In Yesterday’s Blog entry I showed a photo of an Osprey nest…where the chick was hiding because of the noise I made during my approach. I had occasion to go by that nest again yesterday and got some pics of Momma Osprey with baby chick. The rangers tell me that the chick is nearly old enough as to be ready for flight soon. This time I approached the nest in the Bronco and stopped about 100 yards away. Rather than using my tripod…these photos were taken by hand-holding the camera while sitting in the driver’s seat of the Bronco…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

Yesterday I started out to circle El Vado Lake but had to turn back because of a soft and slippery muddy road. I did get this one photo that shows how low the water level is down because of a several year drought…
