Rio Grande del Norte National Monument

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.

La Junta Canyon Trail We had a gorgeous hike into the Rio Grande gorge to where the Red River flows into the Rio Grande River. It was a quick 1.2 miles down with a thunderstorm downpour and a honkin' 1.2 miles back UP. Absolutely gorgeous views and some great BLM campgrounds are noted for future trips to the area.

More to follow — this site has been updated for the last week with an iPhone, which, needless to say, can be quite tedious. We can't wait to get coverage again for our MiFi.
