A climber (far left) on “Technowitch”, 5.12a.
Allison, Minesh and Laura display their pies
Minesh REALLY likes pie
That one “kid” in the gray shirt looks a bit too big for that carousel
We didn't enter the pie contest but Laura fully intends to win it next year. She's already started a strict pie baking training regime
Fruit, yeah, fruit. I would like to be a judge next year.
The judges dig in
This restaurant is pretty much all there is to Pie Town, NM
After eating entirely too much pie, we went rock climbing at Enchanted Tower. This shows our camp for the night.
Allison starting up “Poison Apple”, 5.11b
High on “Poison Apple”
Laura on “Ugly Duckling”, 5.9, on the Ugly Duckling boulder
Minesh making ugly face on “Ugly Duckling”, 5.9
Minesh found that this route was a great place to practice some falls. This was a doozy!
OK, back to it. Finishing the climb.
Motion picture action of one of the smaller falls.
Pie Town may have all kinds of fruit pie but they don't have my frito pie! This will be my entry in the pie festival contest next year.
The tower by moonlight.
One the way home we made the requisite stop at the Very Large Array. Those things are pretty cool.
Laura and Minesh being hunted by a female antelope. Run!
That one on the right looks pissed! Some birds nesting in the roof of the picnic shelter at the VLA.
Back home and ready for the next adventure.
