Hunting Season


Into the foothills
Today was the first day of hunting season here in New Mexico, and all I can say is "Welcome to the Wild West."  At dawn this morning, from my home office, I heard what sounded like a small war erupting in the desert east of the house.  Nobody can convince me that the rapid-fire discharges could seriously be coming from quail or dove hunters.  No wonder, then, that Becca and I felt slightly unnerved as we headed in the direction of the OK Corral for our Tortugas Mountain trek.  Good news:  we didn't get shot.
