Farmington, NM High 94 Low 67
We try to keep our miles traveled below 200 in a day and preferable under 150. 110 miles north of Santa Fe is Heron Lake State Park. Most of you know how wonderful New Mexico State Parks are and this was no exception. For $14 we had water and electric with a dump station. I thought the campground was close to the water but we never did see the lake. Of course, we didn’t unhitch so didn’t do any exploring.
Isn’t this a gorgeous huge site!
This was our closest neighbor.
Beautiful scenery on our way west.
Another 108 miles further down the road we are in Farmington, NM in the northwest corner of the state. We are camped at the San Juan County Fairgrounds. For $20 a night we have water and electric with a dump station. And NO neighbors. There are over 500 RV spots – some on asphalt and some on gravel.
You can also boondock out in their huge parking lot but 94 degrees is just too hot for us not to have the air running.
The woman working in the office who checked us in was just wonderful. She was at lunch when we got here so we just picked a spot and checked in later. We picked a gravel spot under the biggest tree in the area. She told us this was the best spot in the park. She also gave us some suggestions for dinner.
We also had an errand to run. The handle on our TV antenna broke. Found an RV dealer with a parts department that had the new handle. Jim said their service department must not be very friendly. There was a sign posted that said “We do not perform warranty work on any vehicle not purchased from us.”
Since we have NO neighbors, we are going to do some exploring because we can leave the barker in the rig.
