We arrived after a long drive from Sumner Lake State Park. The drive was broken up by stopping for lunch for about 30 minutes and a fuel stop an hour later. We got in the 5th wheel and used the over head vent to pull the hot air out while we had lunch. We relaxed and even read a book.
We passed through the Pueblo Indian reservation after Albuquerque. Of course, on both ends of the reservation they had a casino. No sense letting people drive through without giving them an opportunity to fund the tribe. 😉
The drive into the park was “interesting”. Right after leaving the interstate we passed over a cattle guard. The entire area is open range. The road has some steep drops and rises with a few hard switchbacks. The truck did fine bringing us into the park.
We are now at 7500 feet in elevation. The air is cool and expected to stay below 75 during our stay. It was so cool during the day and 50 degrees at night that we did not have to use our AC at all.
There is a pretty lake that is stocked with rainbow trout, catfish and tiger muskie. A herd of wild horses lives on the property and we hope to see them. They are protected by the Navajo tribe.
There are several trails that we can hike. It is very quiet and peaceful. We were able to get one of the last "first come first serve" electric spots. This park has only 35 sites with 30 amp electric. You must fill your water tank up before going to your site. There is no water connections at the sites. The 70 other sites do not have anything but a fire ring and picnic tables. Many had their generators for supplying their own electricity as needed.
We are a couple who have started on a new adventure...
