We eventually found our way to the strip of civilization called Cimarron, NM.

We stopped for gas and groceries and a snack, and headed up the canyon into the mountains.

I was struck by nostalgia when I realized that this is the town next to the Philmont Scout Ranch, where I had hiked and camped for a couple of weeks back in... hmmm... 1977? '78? We took the train there and back from Chicago. Yikes .

I have some photos from back then, maybe I'll scan a few in when I get home if I can find the album. What's funny is LDF's nephew is planning on going there. Who'd have thought Aunt Francine would get there first?

"I came into this game for the action, the excitement; go anywhere, travel light... get in, get out... wherever there's trouble, a man alone... Now they got the whole country sectioned off; you can't make a move without a form." --Robert De Niro as Archibald 'Harry' Tuttle in Brazil, 1985.
