Last Day in New Mexico, Riding and Rocks

Our last day in New Mexico… Chris was excited to get out on the trails with his motorcycle after seeing what was out there.  Kim graciously bid him farewell while she did some shopping and laundry.  Chris returned from his ride with a big smile. Although Silver City was not originally a destination he was excited about, he has now declared this area the first place he would consider a retirement location..

The last place Kim wanted to check out in this area was City of Rocks State Park.   Chris captured this picture on a hill looking down on the park.  As the story goes, City of Rocks SP was the result of volcano action near Albuquerque.  The exotic collection of volcanic “art,” set in the middle of a grama grass plain, was formed by a huge explosion called the Kneeling Nun eruption about thirty four million nine hundred thousand years ago. The “city” is a fantasyland of wind- and water-sculpted pastel rock columns. Only six other places in the world have similar formations.

Now thats a campground location!

Kim was very bummed when she saw the campground at City of Rocks.  We both wished we would have know it was there sooner.  Not only was there an RV section but there were also sites interspersed in the Rock City (very cool).

We had fun climbing around on the rocks.

    Hey Bob,

    Very good to hear from you. Hope you and the family are staying warm and finding some fun things to do in the cold. We are having a great time. Honestly, with the limited TV coverage we have had, it has been difficult to stay current with news and politics. We would have like to see the inauguration but didn’t have service… We are hoping to catch the Superbowl.

    Kim and Chris
