In the past, my travel patterns have consisted mostly of hanging around New Mexico in the Fall and Winter, and traveling to other places in the Spring and Summer. However, in the last few years, travel restrictions have curtailed that pattern. I’m hopeful that this year will allow roaming.
Plans are being made to begin a wide loop in the southwest to see places missed during previous trips. It will avoid stopping in densely populated areas as much as possible. No sense in taking unnecessary chances. I should head out in the first part of April.
So far, the planned route goes through parts of Arizona, Utah, and Colorado before returning to New Mexico. Camping will be at BLM and national forest campgrounds and boondocking. Seeing historic sites and hiking, along with other opportunities are expected. It should be a fun excursion.
