Wherever we go, and whatever the scenery is like, Tardis is always at home. In Spring and Summer it’s mostly boondocking, and in Fall and Winter much of the time is spent in New Mexico State Parks.
I recently returned to one of my favorite spots. Aguirre Springs Recreation Area-BLM is on the eastern slope of the Organ Mountains. It has two trails into the mountains. The views from there are marvelous. And, Tardis fits in perfectly below the pinnacles.
Another scenic camp is in the Cibola National Forest and sets up high with a clear view of the nearby Sawtooth Mountains. While Rockhound State Park is perched against the Little Florida Mountains, provides several trails, and this spot overlooks the valley below.
A more tranquil location is next to the Río Grande at Caballo Lake State Park-Percha Dam Recreation Area. It has many trees, a couple of short trails, and sounds of the river flowing by. Also, a quiet and secluded boondocking area managed by the Bureau of Reclamation, is right on the banks of the Río Grande. Sometimes, it provides visits from wildlife or free range cattle.

Does the NM state parks have restrictions due to Covid? They were all closed down for a while. Thanks! I’m envious!😀
New Mexico State Parks are now open for all campers. If it has multiple comfort stations/bathhouses, perhaps only one will be open. Masks are required indoors, and when with other people. Also, sites with hookups, and some drycamp sites, now require an advance reservation via ReserveAmerica. However, some parks seem to be accommodating for drive in campers during the off season (Fall/Winter). Keep in mind that many parks also have primitive camping areas which is like boondocking inside the park. Hope this helps.
Thank you for the photos. I always enjoy your blog. I am glad that things are starting to open up again.
Glad you like the photos. I appreciate you letting me know that you enjoy following the journey.
