Mimbres, NM – Gila Cliff Dwellings Natl Park

We all headed to Gila Cliff Dwellings Natl Park today. Floyd and Terri have been here many times and took us on the mile hike to dwellings. We got to actually go in them and explore. After our hike, we stopped at the Visitors Center and watch a movie on the area. We took a different route which was a beautiful drive to Silver City. We stopped for Mexican dinner and then went back at Floyd and Terri’s where we had marathon joker games and cocktails.

This morning we watched the little Gambles Quails scurry around. Also the bunnies and lots of birds. Today is party day. Floyd and Terri invited some of their neighbors over for a BBQ. Floyd was out early starting ribs. Terri made some sangria. I got appetizers ready. Now we are relaxing and their friends Margielen and Pat came over. We played some jokers, had cocktails, and relaxed looking at the beautiful scenery around them. When it was time to eat some big thunderstorms came in so we ate inside and then went back to more jokers. It was another great day.

We don’t have far to go today, about 4 hours. So we relaxed outside and had coffee. Now we are headed to Mimbres NM near Silver City to visit our Lazy Lakes friends, Floyd and Terri. They have a great house and lots of property. They even have an RV site on their property. After getting set-up, the four of us enjoyed the afternoon and evening getting caught up, playing some joker games, bags, having cocktails and wine, a great steak, potato and corn dinner and more cocktails.
