1989-03-24: NM: Roswell->Carlsbad (prairie chicken trip)

@Lek: Waldrop Park: Prairie Chicken lek
GPS: 332504n1034852w Approximate location of Waldrop Park on US-380.
@day: Roswell->Carlsbad (prairie chicken trip)
The active lek was around a metal water tank a few miles north of US-380 on a dirt road, possibly Mathers Road (based on memory and Google research done in Nov. 2007).
My neighbor Phil Johnson and I got up at 2:15am and endured a horrible Denny's meal to get out to the lek before dawn.
