The 1st campground we stopped at was a dust bowl. We thought about spending the night but decided to push on. The next one down the road was a winner — paved road & sites. Nice!
"The decision to leave a day early from our previous campground was a wise move. We came up with a very spacious & private campsite at Scout Mountain just south of Pocatello, ID."
We're not crazy about this campground — it has a ridden hard & put up wet feel. We paid for two nights, but think we'll cut our losses & move on in the morning.
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.
Playing tourist, we did a little campground reconnaissance & found this site – very spacious with a knock-out view through the Ponderosa pines. We just had to take it.
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 sense 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 Taos, Questa, Red River, Eagle Nest, & Angel Fire. The whole loop is approximately 100 miles and circles Wheeler Peak, the highest point in New Mexico. We usual...
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 Oklahoma.
"It's always fun to have a winery as your destination. Bar Z Winery was no exception. We had a 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 gotta drive and drive...
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.
We're spending a few days at Red Hawk Ranch to help friends celebrate their wedding. Our coach has a nice spot overlooking Roy Creek.
It's been about a year since our last Austin visit, and we are looking forward to seeing family & friends, along with the intention to address unfinished business. Damn storeroom!
Left the Guads and landed at another Harvest Hosts. This time Eola School Restaurant & Brewery. Interesting stop.
Is it any surprise we ended up at the Guads — Guadalupe Mountains NP. We were planning on surprising our friends that were gathering here, but I think they were on to us.
We're on a roll! Our third Harvest Hosts in as many days. This time we're at La Viña, the oldest winery in New Mexico, located along the Don Juan Oñate trail in La Union.
