Tres Piedras, NM…Rained Out

Saturday, May 23rd, 2009

On May 23rd, we all woke up early. The sun was out for the time being, and everybody seemed hopefull for climbing. Breakfast was served, with a side of thought provoking conversation (What can I say, I love this group!). Chitter chatter covered a variety of topics-including favorite recent books read, inlaws, and camping gear.

Note: Dennis & I were especially fond of Doug’s Coleman folding table with a rolled metal top. Super cool!

Tres Piedras Near Taos, NM

On May 22nd, before we headed to the Tres Piedras campground, we needed to grab some grub. We decided to visit our favorite grocer (Trader Joe’s) for the requisite camp foods.

In about an hour, we had filled our cooler with goodies (and stocked up on some shelf items for home). I was immensely sad because they did not have my favorite juice, Sir Strawberry.

After TJ’s, we touched base at the condo, and then followed Ann & Dylan over to lunch at Annapurnas, an ayrvadic/vegan restaurant. I got the most delicious Thai Stir Fried Veggies with Rice Noodles. The flavor was amazing, vegan food can be just as exciting as non-vegan food! Dennis was happy with his lunch as well. We got a yummy brownie to go…as a snack for later.

With food in our tummies & in the cooler, we headed up to Tres Piedras for the weekend. Clouds loomed ominously in the sky, but we decided to ignore them. I wanted to just be happy that we would be meeting our friends at a beautiful climbing area, fresh with possibility. (more…)
