Mimbres, Deming, Glenwood, Reserve: NM

We've been chasing wildfires in a variety of locations. After working 12 days, today is the first of my two days off. I'm catching up on laundry, my website, and sleep.

Near Mimbres, NM. The red pick-up truck broke down, we waited along side the road and played with horses until help arrived.

My Horse friends along side the road where the truck stopped running.

She reminded me of some of my mom's white Arabians.

All three horses were mares and all very friendly.

More hand watering means more play time with the water hose for Cierra.

We were only at this helibase for one day. It was very, very warm here.

Cierra would try to sleep but she was so hot she couldn't get comfortable for too long.

The Huey came in to our helibase and created a huge dust storm, it was not nice.

After the dust settled, the Huey unloads its internal cargo.

The sun set made the New Mexico desert glow.

My Honey's here, hallelujah! Getting up to date with our mechanic Lee. There wasn't much to catch up on, N9AT is fairly new.

There is one Huey with us, Reserve, NM.

From Reserve, NM we drove to Alpine, AZ to spend the night.
