Almost from the day we arrived at Sevilleta we’d heard tales of the West Mesa. Reportedly it holds views like no other. So, one day we decided why not make a run for it. Well, actually it was a drive but still we thought we’d give it a shot.
We’re not going to drag this out for you. We didn’t make it. There were several reasons. 1) We hadn’t brought our cell phone. 2) We forgot to pack a lunch. 3) We forgot the bring a shovel - driving in the wash. 4) It looked like it was going to rain. 5) We got lost for about two hours trying to find the right road and by the time we’d found it we realized 1, 2 & 3. Then 4 just made it seem a bit more risky than we were into on that particular day considering 1, 2 & 3.
None the less... we had a wonderful day out. That is until we both started getting cranky because of #2.
To be honest though, we didn’t feel like we missed much because we had a great day in a beautiful place. We’ll share a little of it with you now.
So you see, although we did not see the West Mesa we sure did see a lot of other things and that is more than fine with us.
