Playing Tourists in New Mexico, Part 5

El Malpais National Munument, NM
Last Monday, March 25th, we decided to move up north to Bluewater Lake State Park. We knew it was a risk with the weather, but we were looking for new scenery and new adventures. This State Park only has 14 sites with electric, but another 130+ sites without electric. It was a gamble that paid off. Being early-season, the state park was almost empty. There were only a few electric sites taken...

Playing Tourists in New Mexico, Part 4

Fort Craig, New Mexico
​After arriving at the Caballo State Park, NM , we got the last electric site. However, it was in the "lower" section by the river. We spent a week there, then moved to the "upper" section above the lake. These are much prettier sites with a better view. Our site overlooking the lake. We spent a week in the "lower" section and another week in the "upper" section. With a 14-day stay limit in a...

Playing Tourists in New Mexico, Part 3

Caballo State Park, NM
After leaving Elephant Butte State Park , we headed to the Volunteer Travel Campsites (32.3774, -106.4913) located on the White Sands Missile Range (Army Post). This is a small, 8-site RV Park located on the main portion of the Army post. It's very quiet here, with wonderful views of the Organ Mountains. A pretty good deal for only $10 a night with full hook-ups. It's located between Las Cruces an...

Playing Tourist in New Mexico, Part 2

Our site at Elephant Butte State Park, NM
We've been fairly busy here at Elephant Butte State Park near Truth or Consequences in New Mexico. We got a nice site looking out over the lake, in the distance. There's plenty of "dry-camping" available, either in a developed site or just out in the desert. Some people are even camping out on long sandy points, just a few feet from the water. When we got here a couple weeks ago, it was getting do...

Playing Tourist in New Mexico, Part 1

Fort Bayard Officers Row, circa 1910
While staying at the Pancho Villa State Park in New Mexico, we spent the last 12 days relaxing, working a bit on the computers, and playing tourists. One day, we had a few road-runners chasing each other for hours. I think the female was going to eventually loose that battle. The state park has a nice, small museum explaining what happened in March 1916 with the raid by Mexican General "Pancho" Vi...
