Yesterday evening I walked five miles. I did my walk from the house to Indian Head Trailhead Parking Area. I used my handheld GPS in order to measure the distance I walked and to calculate my walking speed. I also witnessed another fantastic sunset along with some interesting landscapes at sunset. Since Big Bend National Park is closed I guess I could be arrested for walking into the park to Indian Head, sooo, I just walked to the parking area instead. Dagblasted politicians.
I finally was able to get some photos of the new chihuahua puppy that we adopted a couple of weeks ago. Someone named him Coco so I guess the name stuck and..well...yep. Coco finally stopped moving and fell asleep in my lap so I decided to take advantage of the moment and snap a photo of him.
I'm not exactly sure what happened to the garden this summer but we didn't get squat from the plants. They bloomed but the bees just did not visit. Well, now, as I walked out the door I spotted the mint with blooms from the little start that we planted and now that the season is almost over, the tomato plant is just now producing some fruit.

As the sun began to set at my back it lit up the surrounding red lava rocks that line the way to Indian Head.

...and those politicians better get their act together and make the world a better one by settling their dispute. I'm getting tired of having a one way argument with the tv.
