Our sort of day, only 55 miles of driving in which we moved from the desert floor up to the trees again. We're tucked in on a spacious site amongst the aspens and lodgepole pines.
We went from hot to hot and traded spectacular views for a nice spot on the Green River. The folks next site over said it cools down pretty good at night. Hopefully they're right.
What a difference 145 miles can make. This morning we left our campsite at 9,500' elevation in the fir/aspen trees & traveled to one at 5,818' surrounded by beautiful canyons & vistas.
"We booked 318 miles so we could hook up with our friends Dawn & Jonathan. Scored the very last walk-in site in the campground. Our site, located near to a stream, has nice views."
Rio Grande del Norte National Monument is a short drive from our Forest Service campground, so it only made since to check it out. We had a fun day exploring and hiking.
Breweries & Brewpubs on the Enchanted Circle.
The Enchanted Circle is a scenic auto touring loop in northern New Mexico that goes through the towns of Taos, Questa, Red River, Eagle Nest, & Angel Fire. The whole loop is approximately 100 miles and circles Wheeler Peak, the highest point in New Mex...
We're so happy to be back in the tall pine/fur trees and mountains. Camping at 7,900' elevation about seven and a half miles west of Red River, NM.
Today’s drive ended at Black Mesa SP, a quiet park, in the western part of the Oklahoma panhandle. Why? Because we were very near the highest point in Okahoma.
"It's always fun to have a winery as your destination. Bar Z Winery was no exception. We had nice spot for our RV. Later we sampled great wines & had a fun visit with the owner."
Long drive day, at least by our standards — 342 miles. If you want to get out of Texas you just gotta drive, and drive...
I had a thought-provoking incident during my early morning coffee walk on the beach. A couple was illegally walking their three dogs off leash. Their large brown dog charged, and I was sure my leg was going to have a close encounter with a set of teeth, but instead he nipped at the sandals in hand....
Even full-timers need a little R&R. We've escaped from Austin and unfinished business to one of our Texas faves. We're on island time for the time being.
