Roswell, New Mexico
Wednesday, November 17, 2004
Huh?!? Well that kinda sucks, for some reason my camera is somewhat troubled this morning. It's now taking blank pictures and the display on the back of the camera is blank as well. What's going on? It's a cold morning, so perhaps the camera needs a little warming up? I start up the van and let things warm up to a gentle sizzle.
Ahhh, now that's much better, she's come back to life. I was getting a little worried for a minute there, I don't wish to spend $200 on a new camera cuz I'm on a tight travel budget ya know. Given this recent string of cold November nights, does this mean I now have to sleep with my camera to keep it warm and functional? Ha! If I do I suspect my computer will immediately malfunction, expressing its displeasure with my cozying up to my new sleeping companion. And there I'll be, sleeping with both my camera and computer, then what will my cell phone start thinking? Yeah, I think you get the picture, my camera must deal with the cold on its own.
Looking above I notice the sky is dressed in fish scale attire this morning. Thinking back aways, it's been a long time since I've seen a sky as gussied up as this one.
What's on my agenda today? Good question. Well, today will be both a driving and sightseeing day for me. I have plans to visit Roswell, New Mexico on my way to Taos, New Mexico, my day's final destination. Leading up to today, I've read and heard quite a bit about Roswell and its UFO culture. Without a doubt, Roswell is the mecca for UFO history and research. Folks from all over the world make a pilgrimage to this city. They come to experience the International UFO Museum and Research Center, America's (perhaps the world's) centerpiece and shrine to anything and everything UFO.
After breakfast I hit the road and drive out of Carlsbad, New Mexico.
