Yesterday was our last day at this year’s Grant County Rock and Gem show in Silver City, NM.
I started out the day with a 45 minute (3.62 mile) run. My run time was slow, but I stopped to take quite a few photos and submit “Now Hiring” signs to JobSeeker.
After my run, we went to the rock show. I ducked out for part of it in an attempt to do some online tutoring. Instead, I had all sorts of audio problems, so I cancelled the rest of my tutoring appointments for the day, rather than continuously fight these problems. Hopefully, the students will agree to the rescheduled times.
In the evening, we drove back to Socorro. We stopped several times along NM 152, as it is a scenic drive. First stop was the Silver Fire site, which overlooked a good chunk of the Gila National Forest.
While we were there, we found a geocache.
The next stop was near an old bridge. Unfortunately for us, the name plates had been removed, so we have no idea when the bridge was constructed.
The final stop was along the Percha creek. We walked along a former road bridge that crossed the canyon formed by the Percha creek. We also looked for a geocache here, but, as the sun set, the light became too little to continue our search.
Overall, this was a great trip, and I look forward to next year’s adventure down here.
Thank you for reading my post.
