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.
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.
Well we made it to St Clair in Deming, NM – another Harvest Hosts stop. This is our third year to visit and spend the night at this winery — one of our faves.
A nice state park for a couple day layover. We got a great site overlooking Lea Lake.
Once again we found ourselves at a campground we enjoyed last spring. Oliver Lee is nicely tucked in at the base of the Sacramento Mountains in the Chihuahuan Desert.
We like to visit High Desert Brewing while visiting Las Cruces. Spotted Dog was a new find for us. Well worth the visit.
Leasburg Dam State Park: Site #31 & #6, these sites have water & electric, dump station nearby, 29 sites, 4,200 foot elevation. February 19th - 25th.
We arrived at Leasburg with a three day reservation because last spring we couldn't get in without a reservation (we don't like making reservations). We are finding plenty to do in the area so we scored one of few first come/first serve sites with water & electric to extend our stay.

We returned to a state park we thoroughly enjoyed last spring & were greeted with a sea of little yellow flowers. One of the few state parks where rockhounds can collect rocks.
This State Park is the site where Francisco "Pancho" Villa's Mexican revolutionary attacked Columbus, NM and the historic Camp Furlong on March 9, 1916.
Our second visit to St Clair Winery via HarvestHost.com. Friendly folks here along with good wine!
