From our perch on a ridge top at Valley of Fires BLM Campground surrounded by lava fields only 5000 years old, we again are going to have a windy day. I point out that the Lava is only 5000 years old, because, with the exception of active volcanos, 5000 years old is very recent.
There is no water for kayaks for 100 miles in any direction. However from our location, if it was there, we could see it from here. Visibility is at least 100 miles. Valley of Fires is on the east side of White Sands Missile Range (the range is huge, which comes in handy when you shoot missiles).
We will be here for the rest of the week. The nearest town to our campsite at Valley of Fires is Carrizozo. Population 950 +/- including the surrounding ranchers. We passed through Lincoln, made famous by Billy the Kid. We will return for a visit and send pictures.
For alien fans, our current location is much closer to the actual location of the “government cover-up” than Roswell. The sky is very dark and clear at night. Even without the moon, the stars were bright enough to see the road last night.
For fans of the extremely remote, don’t miss our next post, we go to a place that hardly anyone has ever gone to. It is important but almost always closed.
Here is a link to the google map for the area.
