On the Road Again to Quiriego

Hola! It is now mid afternoon and I am going to be real quick with this bit of news because Senor is patiently reading on the bed behind me while the water boils away in the kitchen tool room for his cup of soup and I know he would like to read about the great golf upset today while he gets that sodium intake.

Around nine we took off in search, once again, of the back road to Quiriego. We traveled slowly on a very bumpy, corrugated or as we call it, cordouroy road and pretty much all I have to say is we did not find it. We did, however, see some pretty sights and so we had a great time. Around one we agreed that we should turn around as we have an event to attend around six.

We also decided that the road may be farther away to the north and into the mountains than we realize, so one early morning soon we will be up and on the search again.

We are certain, as others tell us, the road turns west off the dirt road to San Bernardo. San Bernardo's reputation is a little less than desirable, so as much as we would like to go there and see the old church, we would rather find the right back road to turn on and head to Quiriego than make a mistake and end up at the San Bernardo town plaza.

So, this is what we saw.

We followed a road to the left when we thought we were getting too close to San Bernardo and then, we could go no further.

Okay, Senor is a very patient person, but soup and golf are calling. Adios! Linda Lou

Do you know what is in the pale blue pipe? Oil, Gas, Water?

Linda Lou and Senor, Too said...

norm, hi! we are not sure, but we don't think there is any oil or gas here. We believe that pipe holds water that flows from the Mocusarit (sp) dam to towns in the Alamos municipality. We thought a new water pipe was being installed out on the careterra from the cutoff (at the highway) to the dam and then east to Alamos, we have seen new pipe going in, and yet, this blue pipe looks freshly painted (maybe a year or so). Alongside it here and there is a large older looking rubbery pipe.
So, that is all I know, but we, too, are pretty curious. Can anyone out there tell us more???
we are on our way to a dinner party and i will let you know how many different answers i get!!!
