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.
You could even see the milky way!
There was a loop hiking trail that went up the hill behind our camp site and gave great views. So before we moved on, we did a little morning hike. We brought the hammer too, so that we could crush some rocks and see if they were geodes.
That's us in the bottom right.
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!
