storm near Stanley
I came back from UNM library this evening (yes, it is probably crazed to go to a library that requires a 150 mile round trip, but it coughed up some useful books, and as a bearer of a NM drivers' license I can have borrowing rights) by a slightly longer route than usual since the rainclouds looked so dark over I-25 - so I went down I-40 and then up NM41. This passes through a near ghost town, Stanley - once a little ranching center. And on the outskirts is an abandoned pale turquoise gas station that I've always been meaning to take a picture of - and the storm light was so good tonight that I stopped to do so ... this isn't even the best shot, quite, but that one had a large raindrop blurring the lens.
