Yesterday evening I finished my post and pushed the Publish button with Open Live Writer like I’ve done a thousand times. What do I get? A 500 server error. Doesn’t tell me the problem, just errors out. I tried everything I could think of to make it work. When I tried publishing without photos, the post published. I was tired, so I put a note out there saying no photos because of an error and went to bed.
In the morning, it was cold! 35 degrees of cold. I looked up Yuma and they were at 54 degrees. What am I doing here? I turned on the Wave heater and took Yuma for his morning walk. He just loves it here. He was running circles around me going a hundred miles an hour!
Racing towards home. There isn’t another person within a mile of my camp.
Then I worked in earnest trying to figure my publishing problem out. I knew I could do it. I’m not going to bore you with all the things I tried that failed, but in the end, I decided to try using Blogger editor and I was able to upload my photos and build my post and publish it. Somehow, I have a problem with Open Live Writer and Google Photos. I tried adding an album named Open Live Writer but it didn’t work. At least I can publish my blog, so I’m happy!
Around 10 A.M. I heard a vehicle outside and stepped out. It was a ranger and he asked that I wait at the MH. I waited while he ran my vehicles through a check and then stepped out of the truck. I just knew he was going to tell me to leave. Just to make my whole day just great!
Nope. He said I was fine and he was just going around making sure folks knew about the 14 day limit. That’s really great!
Around 2:30, Yuma was sick of me working on and cursing this laptop, so we headed out for a run up to Palm Tree Mountain.
It was a beautiful drive to the canyon but the road is dusty and wash boardy.
I’ve done the hike up to the palm trees a number of times over the years, but I must say, this year it wore me out. I still have work to do to get into shape and I’m already three weeks into this journey. But the hike was worth it!
I got there around 3 P.M. and the late afternoon sun was hitting right on the crack in the canyon wall where they were. Fantastic! I don’t know if I could make the climb again if they were in shadows and I couldn’t get decent photos.
Looking back on our hike up the canyon.
They are high up on the north side of the canyon wall.
See you later.
