I got to Sumner Lake state Park just before lunch. It was an easy drive and there was no wind so I even got pretty decent fuel mileage. I signed up for 2 nights just to give it a try but there's plenty of room here so I can stay longer if I want to.
Like most New Mexico State Parks Sumner Lake has three ways to camp. Primitive sites, which have nothing but a place to Park for $8 a night. Improved sites, which have a picnic table trash cans camp fire ring and a water hookup, that's $10 a night. And for the rich folks they can get all that plus electric hookups for $14 a night. And remember that price includes entrance to the park. I didn't need an electrical hookup so I took an improved site.
I haven't had much time to look around yet or take any pictures, I just stayed busy making lunch, setting up camp, and relaxing. I'm good at relaxing I can sit for hours without getting tired.
Even though this place is really out in the middle of nowhere I've still got full Verizon service, which is amazing when I look around and see where I'm at.
Tomorrow I'm planning on going into Fort Sumner and check out what's going on with Billy the Kid. since the whole town revolves around Billy the Kid and the legend that's been created around him, it's a good place to be to hear the latest Billy the Kid rumors. Billy the Kid whose real name is Henry McCarty is buried near here [allegedly] so I'll have to drop by and pay my respects.
Here's the latest video I've been working on. It's the Fort Union national Monument that I visited a while back.
