Not All The Way

Cloudy start
Dr. K, Becca and I did a long hike two-thirds of the way around Tortugas Mountain and back this morning.  We were an hour early according to our body clocks; that's because we had set all of our timepieces ahead last night due to Daylight Savings Time.  There's a bill in the New Mexico State legislature right now whose goal is to do away with the time change.  If it actually passes, though, we'd be an hour earlier than El Paso, Texas at this time of year, causing havoc for Dr. K who still teaches at UTEP.
