From Google Maps, you can't see elevation, and we had NO idea this site would be so elevated and tight.. However, after checking things out upon arrival, we decided to give it a go.. Mark did an awesome job (like usual) finagling around the corner, and I must have done something right in guiding him.. It took us a lot of patience and slow moving, and we finally got it in the perfect spot! Hopefully this toasty little spot will keep us warm in the next few days when it's supposed to be colder.
Place Details: City of Rocks State Park, NM. These rocks were formed by an underlying volcano many years ago. The rocks were pushed upward and many years of wind wore away the sandstone between them. New Mexico made this place a playground. There is an area for electric & water, but all the spots near the rocks are dry camping. We filled up before we found our spot, and we're here for 5 days. Since we're amid the rocks and not trees, our solar panels will work perfectly! Now to explore the area! :-)
