A nice, spacious State Park within walking distance of Heron Lake in North-Central New Mexico.
Site Quality = 4/5
Heron Lake has ~6 separate camping areas dotted around Heron Lake. The electric hookups are [...]
Like all great projects they claimed it couldn’t be done. Yet in the end all it took was a man, a vision, some industrial ingenuity and the fortitude to make it happen. It was the early 1870′s and prospectors in hunt of gold and precious metals had flooded out west, most making the perilous journey [...]
We’re nearing the end of our time here in New Mexico. What started off as a potential 2-week trip with the idea that ”we’ll just make a couple of stops” turned into a tremendous 2-month exploration of a fascinating and diverse place. I’m not exaggerating when I say that New Mexico has blown us away. It’s [...]
So it’s officially the first day of summer, the solstice, the longest day of the year. Technically the earth’s axis is at exactly 23.4 degrees relative to the sun. Historically it’s a day of celebration, ceremony and fascinating pagan rites, but in Nina terms it means beautifully long sunny days and barefoot walks in the grass.
It’s the turn of [...]

Very nice site quality here, especially for a National Forest. [...]
We’ve been very busy these past weeks exploring all the cool little corners of The Enchanted Circle NM. There is so much to see here, and so many interesting side-stories to discover. From hidden petroglyphs in the Rio Grande Valley, to the moving and beautiful Vietnam Veterans Memorial (the life-work of a father in [...]
It’s not an exaggeration to say that much of the West was built on gold. The Moreno Valley is no exception. Located in remote and savage country at high altitude, the area was virtually unvisited until the discovery of the irresistible yellow stuff. It all changed when a Ute Indian traded some “pretty rocks” with the soldiers at Fort Union in 1866. [...]
I must say we’ve had some darn good travel mojo these past few months. We’ve hit the jackpot on both weather and camping, staying south of the big chill up north while somehow managing to stay just one step ahead of fires and heat down south.
Earlier this week it happened again. Just as we were wrapping up our stay [...]
We may be way out in the boonies, but don’t let that fool you into thinking we’re turning into hillbillies. Despite our occasional romps in the wild, chasing squirrels (for pooch at least), and generally going “primitive” we nonetheless (and to our own surprise) manage to cultivate an artistic penchant. It’s the other side of our “out there” [...]
A simple, but lovely BLM camping area set beautifully in the middle of the Rio Grande Gorge just south of Taos in NE New Mexico.
Site Quality = 4/5
There are 7 separate campgrounds in the Orilla Verde Recreation [...]
