Guadalupe Mountains National Park
Where we stayed: Whites City RV Park
After our morning hike and rock collecting at Rock Hound State Park, we headed out toward Carlsbad Caverns. Matt booked the last tour of the season for Slaughter Canyon Cave so we had to rush to get to Carlsbad.
Below is a pic of us heading east toward Las Cruces, New Mexico. Those are the towering Organ Mountains in the distance.
State: New Mexico
Where we stayed: Rock Hound State Park
We pulled into the state park as the sun was setting and only found one open (kind of lopsided) spotl. But it was either this, drive futher in the dark or Walmart parking lot. We were so happy to deal with a little slant. A neighbor gave us some extra wood and Matt build a roaring fire. We made some s'mores and got to see zillions of starts come out above the New Mexico sky. You'd think we would have campfires every night, but surprisingly a lot of campground and rv parks don't allow fires, or sometimes just charcoal ones in a raised grill.
I'll be sharing our travel plans, some reviews, cooking ideas (because I know you are all jealous of my easy-bake oven), and ... oh who am I kidding?! I'll be lucky to get our photos posted!
