I can no longer pop my laptop or folding chair in the car, and drive 4000′ uphill in 20 minutes to cool off 20F.
To cool off the same way – going 4 of the world’s 7 life zones cooler – it now takes 2 hours of driving, though most of that change is in 20 minutes from Alamogordo. And I’ve still done that, though not nearly as much as I would like.
Enjoy the cool down to near-9000′ elevation Cloudcroft NM. And this mega-photo post.
That’s my own word, and my first project with a local architect specializing in private residences – i.e. small spaces, where each element matters.
It’s for a bike shop in a mid-century modern building, now given new life but true to it’s original vision. That business uses another invented word in their name, “Cyclery”. From this shop I frequent, it’s only a several block ride to access part of El Paso’s trails, carefully cut into the limestone rocks and boulders. And two blocks from UTEP, and several more blocks to where I live.
