Crag, great views, are those from this year? The Library Ale House on Main Street has the best beers in town IMHO.

Survival, ahhhh the Land of Enchantment, I'v spent some time in your neck of the woods, but more time upstate in the Espanola, Velarde, Dixon, Taos, Chimayo area.

hey there say, skully.... well, i think my view is bit similar more to yours, so far...

"YE OL' NEIGHBORHOOD GENERAL STREET" ... is that it?


say, we just got real snow, about 11:00, last night, just before
nov. ended... so here you all go,
this was taken at about 6:30 this morning--JUST in time to find this share, here:





HOWEVER! ... i DO have lakeside view.... ur homemade itty bitty pond-view... just to the side, as i view the neighbors nice soft-blue house...
(and not some ugle brick wall--not that bricks are ugly, mind you)...

has fish, when winter is over...





though, i actually can walk down the road, to a few nice "nature spots" nearby... but i DO miss the woods, by where i used to live near...


well then, carry on folks... i really love these views...
and the homes, and the love and care that go into them...

thanks so much for sharing...

This is our backyard web cam. I love to watch it when I'm traveling. It refreshes every 60 seconds. To see a new image, you'll have to refresh the page every now and then. If it's night, you won't see too much; we don't leave outside lights on. I'm sensitive to light polution since I use my telescope as much as possible. However, you do get a inside window reflection of my office door at night. Once in a while you'll get to see one of our dogs walk by.
