Heron Lake State Park – New Mexico Day 13 (GA161)

 Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 22nd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort at Monroe, Washington. I’ll depart here September 6th.

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

 

 

In 2011-2013, Mary and I did a 682 day, 12,679 miles in the motorhome and 8,000 miles in the Bronco, circumnavigation of the United States, which I called The Great Adventure. I called it so because other than my oldest granddaughter’s high school graduation in June in Connecticut, I didn’t know where we would be going or when we would be there!</div?

 

 

So, unless I do something really different and unusual warranting a new blog entry, I’ll be posting entries from that trip.

This entry was posted July 2, 2012…

As a holder of the New Mexico Annual Camping Permit (non-resident $225), I can stay up to three weeks in a park. If desired, electricity can be had for $4 a day. It’s a perfect place for me to be while I rest and recuperate from the May 27th accident. There are 38 parks in the system.

 

 

The locals tell me this is an unseasonably hot summer. So much so, if I have outside things to do I need to get them done by 10:00 AM, after which time I retreat to the comfort of the air conditioning of the motorhome.

 

 

Yesterday I needed a few grocery items, so that meant a one-way trip of 20 miles to Chama to the nearest store. While there, I decided to take a ride a few miles north of town to view the scenery. It was pretty, but on a major roadway with no pull-off areas. I did manage to find a small spot to pull-off and take some photos of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railway heading out of town.

 

 

Here are some of the photos that I took…

I’ve been thinking about taking this train which goes to Antonio, Colorado…64 miles distant and return. Mary and I recently took the ride on The Durango & Silverton Scenic Railway. If you missed that Blog entry, you can view it by clicking this link…

At this point I’ve pretty much decided against taking this train ride. The reason is, riding in the regular cars is hot and stuffy, the windows only open half-way, you cannot (for the most part) see what is coming up ahead and taking photos is a very difficult and awkward process. To really enjoy the sights and to be able to take lots of good photos, you need to ride in the open gondola car like the one we rode in on the Durango & Silverton train. Here’s a photo of that car…

 

 

As you can see it has seats and a roof to provide shade.

 

 

On the Cumbres & Toltec train, the gondola car is nothing but an open box with sides about three feet high. No seats or shade covering…

 

 

With all the fees included, the ride in this train is $101 and change. If this train had a gondola car like the Durango & Silverton, I’d probably take this train ride. But for $101 and change, to have to stand up and bounce around for several hours just is not appealing to me that much…so mostly likely I will pass on riding the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railway.

With the motorhome parked at American Legion Post #28 in downtown Durango…we walked the six blocks and boarded the train for a 9:15 AM departure. It’s 45.2 miles to Silverton. To read about Silverton, click this link…

The elevation in Durango is at 6,512 feet and in Silverton 9,308 feet…a gain of  2,796 feet. With a maximum grade of 4%, it took us 3.5 hours to reach Silverton…going uphill. We enjoyed a two-hour lunch break and walk-around time in Silverton after which we started downhill  and returned to Durango in 3.5 hours.

Once Upon A Time In Monroe, Washington

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 21st year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Chehalis, Washington. I expect to be here for a few days.

 

I’ll be hanging out in this general area until early October, taking maximum advantage of my Thousand Trails membership.

 

(Note: I’m currently a little discombobulated right now. My normal mode is to blog what I experienced yesterday. Right now, I’m several blogs behind my experiences. I expect to be back in my normal mode soon).

 

 

 

Today’s subject…

 

 

About one month ago I was parked at Thousand Trails in Monroe, Washington where I have visited many times over the years. While there, I visited the remains of once was the site of the longest (450 feet) covered railroad bridge in the world.

 

 

Here are some of the photos that I took…

 

 

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…

 

 

 

In  the below photo, I walking east along the northern shore of the Skykomish River. I catch my first glimpse of the remains (at the bottom of the yellow line)…

A little closer look…

Using the zoom lens, it becomes more visible…

dsc02932

 

 

 

 

Continuing east, I catch my first glimpse of the remains on the northern shore of the Skykomish River…

dsc02935

 

 

 

 

Reaching the remains, I look across to the southern shore of the river. That side is now on private property and no longer accessible to the public…

dsc02937

 

 

 

 

I turn my attention to the remains on the northern shore…

dsc02939

 

 

 

 

I’m able to follow a path into the brush for a couple of hundred feet…

Back at the river’s edge, I look once again to the southern shore. The rip-rap in the middle of the river are the remains of one of the bridge support base…

dsc02947

 

 

 

 

I found the below painting in the Monroe Historical Museum the previous day. It’s what prompted me to today’s outing. I’ll show my visit to the museum in tomorrow’s blog posting…

It’s really interesting to visit the remains of past history. The days that are gone forever…

Central America Trip #46

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have almost 4,000 postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Palm Springs RV Resort in Palm Desert, California. I’m scheduled to depart here December 23rd.

I’ve stayed here a number of times in the last 20 years and have blogged most everything of interest in this area. Rather than re-blogging those items again…

I’m taking you back to my…

2004 Central America trip…

This trip ended up being 343 days and 16,000+ miles through the back-country of Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. 11 rigs started the trip, within a week we broke into three smaller groups for ease of traveling. Only myself and one other rig went the full, pre-planned route. All the others dropped out for various reasons. All returned safely to the United States. I’m planning to show these photos, more or less, 10 a day, whenever I’m not doing something else deserving a blog entry. FINALLY, it must be remembered these photos are prior to my switching to digital in 2006. The films were developed during our trip and the lack of quality control sometimes is plainly evident.

Today…Panama (south-bound) #5…

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…

 

 

The new Centennial Bridge under construction during our visit became the second bridge at the western end of the Panama Canal…

#482 (1)

 

 

We took a bus 50 miles to Colon on the eastern end of the Panama Canal. We had heard from many people who told us Colon is a very dangerous city. Since we expected to arrive there in about a week, we decided to check it out and find safe parking in advance of arriving with our RV’s. We located safe parking behind a walled marina with armed guards on the gate for $5 a night. On the way back to Panama City we rode on the Panama Canal Railway…the oldest railway in the Americas. It was built in 1850 to transport the miners heading for the California gold fields…

#484

 

 

It follows the original route along the Panama Canal…

#485

 

 

The canal needs to be constantly dredged to provide safe passage for the huge ships…

#486

 

 

Today the railway is powered by diesel engines. Without this railway, the Panama Canal would never had been built…

#487

 

 

In Panama City, this beautiful bird…

#488

 

 

And this beautiful bird were among several which wandered about freely…

#489 (1)

 

 

While being protected by soldiers…

#490

 

 

Behind iron gates…

#491

 

 

At the Presidential White House where the population can approach much closer than our White House in Washington, D.C….

Panama Pete sang for his supper…

An Extra Day In Durango, Colorado…

After a very full day, the day before yesterday…riding the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad to Silverton and back…we were really weary yesterday. We were supposed to move on…but decided to linger and rest some more before hitting the road once again. Besides…Mary had not yet seen all the remaining art galleries here in Durango. So, that’s what we did yesterday.

Now, I’m not really in to art galleries per se, but I walked along with Mary just to keep her company. Along the way, I just took some photos of whatever caught my eye.

Here are some photos that I took…

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…

Having fun with a camera every day is another joy in the full-time RVing lifestyle!

Today we will once again be back on the road.
