Photo of Da day @ Da Pine #301.Ah, motor on in to the “Rocket Inn!”
Shades of the 50’s & 60″s with a Route 66 feel. Actually it is a couple hundred miles south of the mother road and in Truth or Consequences, NM. We are soaking in the hot springs. T or C was formerly named Hot Springs NM, but changed their name via a contest put on by popular early television game show hosted by Ralph Edwards.
We are staying at the absolutely coolest place in T or C: Blackstone Springs http://www.blackstonehotsprings.com/. This is an old tourist court, that has been throughly updated and all the rooms have a television show theme. We are staying in the Roy Rogers suite which is nice as I got to see Roy Rogers in person at a rodeo in the early 50’s in West TX when I was 5 or 6 . I still have an autographed photo of Roy & Trigger……cool beans
This was an 8 second exposure, 200iso @ f22 with a 200mm lens and a Nikon D300s, made about 9-10:00 in the evening.
