Enjoying our wine o’clock outdoors on 12 January – beautiful day. Travato has 48,000 miles of fun – and a great pullout to commemorate. The Smokey Bear Historical Site has added this tribute to firefighters since we were last here in Capitan in 2016 when the Travato had less than 10,000 miles. Only YOU can prevent forest fires. We walked around Ft Stanton NHS before an Oso Good Chili Burger & Chicken fried steak at Oso Grille in Capitan. Memorable end to a great day trip before heading to Three Rivers Petroglyphs BLM. Two nights with electrical here with very pleasant walks among these petroglyphs. Oliver Lee State Park, Site 19, was one of 2 sites not reserved. We had to go online to reserve after we got there and only available for one night but was worthwhile. We only did a short hike but beautiful cactus and other desert landscape. Our destination was a small pool that creates a waterfall after rains. Almost full moon rise with a beautiful sunset – right from our campsite. White Sands National Park hike to Alkaline Flats, marked with these poles. Interesting wind patterns create an oasis with vegetation. So many interesting sand/wind formations. We were able to get our Site #1 at Aguirre Campground in Organ Mountains National Monument – BLM. Getting ready to hike Baylor Pass somewhere behind me. Looking across to Pine Tree Loop which we will hike tomorrow. Testing aerodynamics against the wind. The full moon setting at sunrise. This is not photo-shopped – it is really what we experienced.
