September 18, 2019 – Pie Town, New Mexico

Today, I decided to take a few pictures of the scenery from Roy and Susan’s back deck and yard. I know I could have taken a video, but stills I took.

Left, nine o’clock

They have fenced off a back-yard garden to keep the cattle and wild animals out and to keep the feral kittens in.

ten thirty

Susan is making headway with some landscaping. She has a number of vegetables and flowering bushes established in raised beds.

twelve o’clock
one thirty

Susan is the weather geek. Those are her wind gauge and rain gauge in the bottom left of the photo.

three o’clock

They have several little log-cabin houses for the outdoor cats.

four o’clock

I zoomed a bit to get the mountain in the distance. I forgot its name already.

This is probably the smallest cornfield ever. We had some for dinner.

Again, I zoomed to get a closer look at the sunset on the distant mountain.

    I looked it up on wikipedia and google maps. Pretty small place all round. Do they still have the Pie festival? How did they come to be living there?

      Yes, Pie Town, downtown, it barely there. Not much going on. No town, really. Roy and Susan were both born and raised in southern California. They lived in Maryland for many years. I met Susan at Patuxent Naval Air Station, where we both worked. She and Roy moved back to California (to work at Edwards Air Force Base) about 20 years ago. I’m not sure why they decided to retire in the middle of nowhere. It is lovely, though. Thousands of stars in the night sky. A good look at the Milky Way. Peace and quiet. The silence is stunning.
