this is one of the reasons I like boondocking at elephant Butte state Park, I can look out my living room window and see this,
I had a long, arduous, 5 mile drive this morning from my boondocking site along the Rio Grande River to Elephant Butte state Park where I was able to find an adequate boondocking spot where I will rest up and recuperate for a few days before I move on in the general direction of my destination. It appears this is the ninth day of my winter travels and I've managed to cover about 600 miles, I need to slow down before I wear myself out.
There's a lot of reasons I like elephant Butte state Park, it has a beautiful view from Ridge Road where I like to boondock, and there's no trees blocking my solar panels. There's great sunrises over the lake, but the sunsets are usually nothing to write home about. There's picture taking opportunities, there's a Walmart in town about 5 miles away, and there's a propane refill station on the way to the Walmart what more could a boondocker ask for?
There's suppose to be a cold front coming through tomorrow which is going to drop the temperatures down to the low 60s for a high, and mid 30s for a low, and bring some gusty winds, so it looks like I'll be hunkered down for a couple of days, but Saturday is supposed to be back in the 70s again.
This is one of the reasons I don't like to hang around for too long in New Mexico during the winter. Because even in southern New Mexico it gets pretty cold and windy more often than I want to deal with.
