Our summer vacation in Colorado came to an end yesterday as we made our way back to Heron Lake State Park near Chama, NM. Since we still have our New Mexico State Park Passes, we decided to splurge on the $4 electric and water sites. This is our third time at this park but the first time we got one of the few hookup sites with a view of the lake.
There are not many people here so it is very quiet. We are taking advantage of the power and water to do some much neglected cleaning before we go off dry camping again next week. And it’s so nice not to have to carry our trash around until we can sneak it into a dumpster somewhere. A long shower in the park’s bath house was also a treat.
We had a great summer in southwest Colorado and are glad we decided to take it slow and cover just a small portion of the state. We managed to boondock for free over half the time we were there, and met some really great people along the way (you know who you are!). Strange that now being back in New Mexico feels like being home again.
