The winds calmed and we moved on to Manzano Mountains State Park yesterday. It is over 7000’ elevation and with the cold front that came in we were greeted with temperatures in the mid 40’s when we arrived. Luckily the beauty of the park made up for the cold. We feel like we are back east, with the pine, juniper and oak trees. This would be a great place to come and escape the summer heat. Unfortunately we are a couple months too early.
