So, I'm house-sitting in New Mexico. Not too tough. Water the plants (replace when dead), get the mail... I'm getting a lot of mountain biking done, good training for next spring. Down side? Well, it is August in New Mexico. Hot. Very hot. But I'm saving a lot on gas money for the van so it kinda evens out.
These pictures are from a variety of places as the last batch was from my phone, these are from my proper camera.

Bonus! Adventures in house sitting.
