What’s the story?

I love when places have names like writing prompts.

Storrie Lake is a state park in New Mexico, near Las Vegas, and I was riffing on the name when I was there in December. As in, what’s the story at the lake? What could have happened there?

According to the website it was probably just a lot of fishing, boating, and windsurfing, but still – my writer’s mind started spinning tales involving all kinds of dramatic events.

But the landscape was simply lovely, no drama necessary.

What's the story?

It was cold and windy, and I was underdressed, but I managed to stay out long enough to capture the waves.

What's the story?

See the chunky white shards? Ice.

What's the story?

I don’t know where Sam was. Probably waiting by the Pilot, where it was warm.

What's the story?

It would be fun to go back and camp there some day. But maybe in the spring.

      Manisha – It’s so nice of you to check in, thanks for your concern. I’ve been dealing with some medical stuff and basically regrouping. Heading to Flagstaff for the weekend to meet a friend, then when I get back I’m getting back to blogging and, more importantly, Scamping. 🙂 I hope all’s well with you. Happy spring!
