4/5: Datil Wells/El Malpais

We blew across the plains while enjoying fun cloud formations.

Very Large Array had a road stop spot to get a photograph.

Datil Wells was one of 25 watering sites on a cattle drive route across New Mexico.

A very pleasant 3 mile nature loop had enough snow that finding the trail was challenging.

Reward was fabulous views that were worth the effort.

We found one of the hidden rocks a Farmington group was doing – it made us smile.

Such a small spec on the big landscape of El Malpais NM , Joe Skeen BLM Campground.

The Lava Falls trail was similar to Valley of Fire.

Grants and Mt Taylor in the background of our campsite.

Enjoying another outdoor happy hour – our first of hopefully many in 2021.

Official twenty-fifth year celebration.
