Friday, December 3, 2021—Whitewater Draw, Day 2

We were up early this morning to catch the flight out and away from the roost area (aka flight line). Swoop after swoop flew overhead as we photographed them.

Returning to the motorhome, we had our usual breakfast of maple and brown sugar oatmeal, downloaded photographs, and began the laborious process of post processing. At about 1030, it was back to the reservoir to watch and photograph the Sandhill Cranes return to their roost area. 

Later in the day, a few other birds made an appearance.

Another problem cropped up with the motorhome; the generator shut down, and gave an error essage regarding the rotor ($$$). We were now dependent on power from “solar” generators brought along, a Rockpals (don’t recommend it) and a Jackery (best of the best). Along with the coach and chassis batteries, we had enough power to run the computers for photo editing and CPAPs for sleeping! Fortunately, the refrigerator, water heater, and stove top work on LP so we were good to go.
