Butterfly 10K

A third fire started this week. It burned pretty wild a few days before getting under control

Hud at Galisteo. He got to hang out with a bunch of old buddies and managed to stay out of trouble

Sunday I ran a 10K at Pojoaque Pueblo. The Pojoaque run two casinos here in the county, including the massive Buffalo Thunder

The 10K was a great time and very organized. Plus great shirts. It had a community feel - tons of volunteers from the Pueblo. Water every mile. The course was gently rolling dirt roads and went well - 45:17 for a 7:17 pace and 18/85 (maybe). Even a medal for age group

Went to the town of Pecos after. Pecos is kind of a gateway to what is supposed to be an awesome wilderness area but is off-limits due to fires (including the one above). The town was like many of the rural Northern New Mexico we've visited - nothing fancy and a touch of Catholicism

Pa told me the last few posts the pics were upside down when he clicked on them. Figured out how to fix that - no thanks to Apple and Google who don't make life easy
