Posted on Tue, 20-Sep-2022Sun, 27-Nov-2022 by pamEnchanted Circle September camping trip to New Mexico – Eaglesnest State park, site #1. Rio Grande Gorge Bridge – always a spectacular site. 7th highest in the USA. Tres Piedras was another nice overlook on the way. Rio Grande del Norte National Monument – Full Moon Rise from our campsite #29 at El Aguale CG. La Junta Point where the Red river joins the Rio Grande – ready to hike! 1,350 feet lower we are at the Rio Grande and ready for a break (6.5 RT). The boulders are all black basalt (lava), ground smooth by the river. Good morning! Big Horn Sheep, next El Aguala CampGround. Oh please don’t get up on our account. Maybe just morning stretches. Columbine CG with a day hike in Columbine-Hondo wilderness. Cimarron Canyon State Park for a few nights. Chili vs Chile – good New Mexican trivia to know. Site #20 at Coyote Creek CG had a view and electricity. Above Taos Junction Bridge and the Rio Grande Gorge. More lava flows. Looking the other direction from the same spot. Gorgeous!
