What I did on my summer vacation
August 21, 2012 by Hilary Lorenz
Summer 2012 I drove to New Mexico over a 4 day period with dogs in the car.
I stopped along the way to look at Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, TX
I ran a half marathon trail race called, “Run the Caldera” in the Jemez Mountains. I placed 7th in my AG.
I hiked the Truchas Peaks.
I hiked Wheeler Mountain the tallest in New Mexico, about 3 times, maybe 4.
I built tables for my new studio in Abiquiu, NM
I taught a little workshop to good friends in my studio.
I climbed my first 14,000 mountain, Sneffles in CO.
and my second, La Plata also in CO.
and my third and fourth Challenger and Kit Carson but I don’t have photos.
I bought 8 tons of pretty dirt for landscaping.
I put up 400 feet of fence, both field fence and coyote fence.
I went to the Lowrider Car show in Espanola.
I did a lot of trail running with the Santa Fe Striders.
I climbed the Pedernal in Abiquiu and saw a horned toad.
Then went back to climb it again.
I watched a lot of storms.
And I had a really good time!
