Wildbirder in New Mexico……



Hi folks we are back from our search. Due to illness we could not finish our search. We had to drive grandson home and returned to quickly without enough rest.  Dr. at ER said this is very common problem for people and anyone would get very ill doing this.  We are trying to come up with a way back because we only searched about ¼ to 1/3 of our area.

Our thoughts were that our search would be a blast and was going to be so EASY!  HA! HA! HA! HA! We were to go into our narrow canyon and do our search going LEFT to RIGHT then moving forward. HA! HA! HA! HA! I real did think the bottom of our canyon would be FLAT! HA! HA! HA! HA! Of course it was ROCKY because we are in the ROCKY MOUNTAINS. HA! HA! HA! HA! And yes there were TREES going straight up to the sky, but there were trees across the trail or at least our path. To get an idea of what it was like hiking where we were hiking think of what a game of Pick Up the Stick would look like if God played using TREES instead of sticks. HA! HA! HA! HA!

We did find a large rock with three trees growing around it. On two of the trees was a clear blaze! Problem was you could not see the marks on the trees coming into canyon only leaving. We like idiots didn’t look very hard at the area at the time. NUTS!!!! We were tired and not thinking is all I can say. We didn’t realize this till later. We saw lots of animals in NM and had a very good time. We will post more later when we are more rested.

  1. 🙂 wildbird. Awesome Im so glad u finally got search, that area does look a tad tough. And I do not see your hubby in the wood 🙂 wish the best the next time.:)
    Thanks for sharing your trip.

    • something i left out of this was that Godzilla could have been stand at the end of our canyon and as Hubby said we wouldnt have seen him unless he was smoking because of all the wood.

  2. I dont see hubby, but what is the post with the 2 yellow spots on the right? Is there a RR in the area, or pipes, etc?
    A paddle is an oar, which is used to row, and ROW could mean a Right Of Way, which is a kind of path but not a trail.
    Better luck on your next trip, and, I liked your reply on what you would do if you found the TC…. I don’t remember what thread it was on.

  3. I see him.

    Sorry about the illness, a search should never be rushed. It takes time to adjust your body to a higher altitude. I am glad you all are ok. Next time you will be better prepared to stay longer.

  4. Going into a towns historical and royal Wood to have a beer or glass of wine, (even that once a year martini); could become a thrill..of sorts!

    Why not stay for dinner and an overnight for some R&R?


  5. We ha e decided to go back thrid week of September around 16 or 19. No camping this time found lace to stay red river area. We still have to drive to search area but with gas cheap its ok.

  6. Glad you weren’t injured..and that’s unfortunate about the illness. Pictures are worth a thousand words ! The devil is in the details..

    Good luck on your next adventure !
