Guadalupe Trip Photos Continued... Bosque del Apache
Approximately 15 quail were at the visitor center feeders.
A nice flock of Sandhills were feeding in the refuge.
Hueco Tanks State Park
This is a place I'd like to return to again sometime. A nice place for desert birds and lots of interesting caves paintings and Native American history. Guided tours are given.
He was singing his heart out! .
Lots of huge and interesting rocks here.
After climbing up some of these rocks you came into a cave. If you continued in and upwards it opened up at the top and you saw this wonderful view. Not only that, but the hole in the rock on the ground (front bottom of photo) was made by the Native American Indians which would then use a large pole and by placing corn or other grain into the hole would use it for grinding, much like a mortar & pestle is used today. I sat on this rock with the hole in front of me, the view ahead with the cave "roof" still over me and it was neat to sit in the same place and see the same view as maybe an Indian Woman would have seen several hundred years ago while grinding corn.
This was taken at the end of the trip at Lake Balmorrhea.
