Sep 19, 2017 - Philmont Boy Scout Ranch

Bob, accompanied by me, Mike and Anne toured Philmont Boy Scout Ranch. Our tour was arranged by our friend, Mike Patrick, a member of the Board of Directors. Over 50 years Bob was at Philmont as a Boy Scout, later to become an Eagle Scout, and it has been one of his most memorable life events. Bob has described Philmont to me many times during our years of marriage so it was a great experience for me to see it first hand. The time that Bob spent there as a 15 year old helped shape his character, integrity, loyalty and more as it does to...

Sep 19, 2017 - St James Hotel

Visited the St. James Hotel in Cimmaron, NM, established 1872. This hotel is a National Historic Landmark on the Santa Fe Trail.

We went upstairs and...

Of course, we didn’t use many of the amenities since we only spent one night and then headed on to New Mexico the next day. I have never known the continuous wind we had traveling from Logan, NM north to Cimarron on Tuesday! We ended up with the fewest miles...

Jun 4, 2010 - Ute Park/Cimarron NM

I arrived in Cimarron, NM on Friday afternoon after an overnight stop in Vernon, where I attended National Guard for a number of years. Upon returning from summer camp at Fort Hood one year, I discovered that there was a warrant for my arrest, luckily the judge was in my unit, but that is another story. The wheat harvesters were in town, RV parks were full and the eerie glow of lights in the fields coupled with lots of dust either signaled combines or perhaps aliens landing. I was surprised by the weather NM, expecting cool mountain...
