We are now in Carlsbad, New Mexico. We passed through Fort Davis, TX on the 6th and spent two nights with the intent of visiting a Star Party at the McDonald Observatory.
So that is what we did on Tuesday night. The night sky did not disappoint but the program kind of did. Or maybe it was the wiggly, cold kids…:) Anyway, my highlight was seeing Jupiter and it’s four moons all in a line, almost exactly 401 years after Galileo first discovered these four moons and that they were revolving around Jupiter and NOT us.
I restocked some of our depleted food stores in Fort Davis. I could walk from the dusty RV park to a little store called Stone Village Market – an interesting half natural food store/half conventional food store.
More to come on Carlsbad and Phase Two of our adventure…staying on small organic farms in the southwest.
