Nice! So you have pubs and bakeries across the street, and a park a couple of blocks away....you sure picked the right place to move to! Nice shot, John! Great photo, Dave! Thanks, Ron! It's certainly harder to get some shooting in now that we live in town. Great photo, Ron! Love the covers and the pantina is coming along nicely! My wife says I need to talk to people more...well I guess it's bottled up and then this place gets the full brunt of it! Well that's cool! Must have been a fun thing for you to do! A lot of folks have been through New Mexico looking for gold. Jake's father, John, is the one that settled there in Southwest New Mexico in the late 1860s. We've had family working in the copper mines there ever since. Somtimes they would hit some small areas of gold, silver and turquoise, but not much. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chino_mine My dad was born there when it was a hill, before it became an open pit. My great grandfather was a constable at the town. This copper and turquoise was mined there, some my dad gave me years ago.
