Fort Stanton, New Mexico.

Mescalero bow and quiver:
Murphy / Dolan House, Courthouse and Sheriffs office standing timeless:
The window Billy shot Deputy Olinger out of with Olingers own shotgun. Apparently, Olinger had been menacing Billy with his double barrel shotgun,endlessly. Billy broke into the armory, took it and gave Deputy Olinger both barrels.
A coworker, claims to be a relative of Olinger. He said Billy shot him in the back and regardless of how he’s been glamorized, he was just a murderer. Something else he stated, back in those times, you had to be a very “rough” individual. Life was difficult, you didn’t know if people coming on your property meant to kill you and take your belongings or what. Then, there was the Mescalero Apaches, they’d just kill you for being on their land.
Sorry for the pic heavy posts. Thought some might enjoy.
I’ve got the neon green Gerber version of that splitting ax, I absolutely love that thing!
Pics from the deer camp earlier this month. My 2 year old is in love with the woods. She was leading the way hiking around the trails.
She was stalking the pair of geese the nest on the island pond every spring.
Didn’t get any pics, but my buddy and I planted over 60 crabapple saplings that Sunday to continue our 10 year tradition of enhancing the property for wildlife every spring.
Some pics from today’s field work. Cypress/Tupelo swamp that transitions into freshwater floating marsh. This is some of my favorite environments to work in.
Wish I could hit that up then go back to where I was earlier for some frogging!
@The Marsh Gorilla that looks like a dream house. Where’s that think located?
Chackbay Louisiana. It’s a little camp on the edge of a bayou surrounded by freshwater marsh.
Yesterdays work trip. Another gorgeous day in a cypress swamp.
this is FAS that almost made me spit tea out of my nose
I’ve grown to expect nothing less from @Zeek !
Hiked into Mescal Spring in Southeastern Arizona. This was the site of the Wyatt Earp and Curly Bill Brocious shootout.
General photo heading into the area.

The spring runs intermittent throughout the year.
Two old graves overlooking the spring.
Another great day in the field!

Heres some pics of the old mill site that burned down in the 50s . Again sorry for the bad pics. Some great photographers have some awesome shots if you want to see better shots google mcnair shingle co coquitlam bc. Its now a park but still very cool. All the old bricks from a now decomissioned factory in abbotsford bc (a cool historic town remains) still lay stamped in the sand.
