week in the canyon at Toas but time to move on. COCHITI Lake New Mexico
was our next stop for another week. This is the same COE park we
stayed in when we were heading north in the spring... and the same spot.
Again $10 a night for 50amp and water. I've got a truck full of firewood
and here no fires are allowed. Only charcoal in the grills. No fire
rings at all. Fires are never allowed... might be this COE park is
on a Indian reservation.. Will just hve to same the wood for later
in AZ or take what's left over to Quartzsite at the end of the year. Where
we can burn it out in the BLM desert boondocking for sure.
The view from the 5 th wheel
door. I think the lake has more water in it than the last time we
were here. Also close by per the campground host they are shooting a movie...
Will have to check that out later this week.
is off just up the hill to the small strip mall at the town to do laundry.
He wants clean clothes as he hinted he wants to take the light rail into
Santa Fe tomorrow.
moved on at last.
count of how much time we spent at our last campsite... at Palisade campground
in the forest service near Creede CO. Must have been over three weeks...
but when you are having fun and no real reason to move on why do so.. What
you think we are on vacation? The weather was warm and after Labor
Day the campground was FREE. What's not to like.
You remember the site don't
We would trek into Creede
from time to time and explore forest roads. Creede has free dump and water
since no dump in any forest service sites and now they had removed the
trash collection. It is one of the last sites that is not locked this time
of year. It's fall and there are still many people who are out for the
change of seasons and need a campground. After all we the public own the
forest and to think some private consignor can lock them up when the are
tired of keeping them open. This one stays open till it gets closed in
by snow. No host or services but open none the less.
During the time we were
there the fall colors came into full splendor.
But we did move on and our
next stop was Taos NM again. Still on the Rio Grande river.
Verde Area of the Rio Grande Gorge
Grande Wild and Scenic River
The bridge and Taos in the
The next day after getting
settled in the campground we went back to the sawmill on highway 64 north
of Taos where we got firewood last year. This time two rows across the
back of the truck bed and bed depth height for get this $25. Last year
it was $18 for one row. She said they were to measure it and not
just charge by the row like the kid last year on Saturday did to us.
Looks not quite full as
we have burned some.
Needless to say it
is even warmer here (upper 70s lows 80s) with clear sky and a great place
to spend a week. Half price with Senior discount for $7.50 a night for
50 amp and water. This is a BLM site.
For later on I have made
reservations for a week at the COCHITI COE recreation area south of Santa
Fe at the same site we had when we came through there in the spring.
Terry wants to take the light rail train into Santa Fe again. And again
at $10 full hookups in a brand new campground. Just slowly heading south
to AZ for the winter.
