    Today we left Valley of the Fires and headed toward The Painted Desert. On the way we stopped at the Very Large Array Radio Telescope. It was an interesting stop. The array was being reconfigured to it's largest formation so it wasn't as impressive as when the dishes are all in a tight cluster. It was cool to see the moving process.

    I wanted to fly my hexacopter from the rest ...

    ... the uniqueness of George and the other motor homers that were there. All of us there in the park probably doubled the population of Pie town from 10 to 20.

    There are no helmet laws in New Mexico, so seeing a 68 year old man and his small dog going 3 mph down a dirt road, is totally normal.

    Oh and if you need to mail something, the post office is the wooden house with "Post Office" written on the front.

At that point in the day, the sun is so high and the light so strong, that it can be hard to even see the poles, but as dusk set in the clouds also began to roll in. At first, the storms we could see were way out on the horizon and we watched lightning strike distant fields and mountains. Right around sunset, we went out into the field to explore. I found an antelope ...

    ... on the valley below us, was the Very Large Array.

    You know the Very Large Array—you've seen the pictures and movies where those huge satellite dishes are all lined up, 20 miles or so long on the desert, pointing to the sky, listening and looking for things like big radio astronomy telescopes do. Well, we found them. And while we had limited time, we paid them a visit.

    It turns out for some government ...

    ... We were able to take a short video of them moving - way cool! After the walk, we popped back in the car and made our way to Bluewater Lake State Park. We decided to take the scenic route, which took us through Pie Town, then a right at Quemado, and north on 36, and then to 117, which took us through El Malpias National Monument, and the Narrows as the sun was setting. Spectacular! We then got on interstate 40 in Grants, NM, grabbed some McDonald’s for dinner ...
