We planned to go camping the first weekend in May, but something came up and we weren’t able to go. The trip got postponed until the last weekend in May, which made me a little nervous since that was Memorial Day weekend. I hate traveling on holidays. BUT, it ended up being a lovely time and we found the most fantastic campground!
As per usual, Matt said he found a spot that he thought would be out of the way where we could find dispersed camping in the national forest. Here’s where we headed:
Actually, that’s not entirely true. We headed to that area, and happened to find a campground instead (more about why it’s so hard to camp outside of campgrounds in this area later…). We drove up through Colorado and then down into New Mexico.
For now, here are a few photographs of the area we drove through to get to our lovely destination.
I can’t wait to share all of the things we encountered on this trip! Wildlife (black bear, anyone?), scenic Shuree Ponds, a ghost town, an abandoned boy scout camp and a campground completely to ourselves, just to name a few. Stay tuned!
