    Sites from the drive in New Mexico

    June 11, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 61 °F

    The terrain quickly changes from grasslands to hills and mountains. Pronghorn are plentiful. The grass is very green and lush. The rain has been good to NM.

    East Fork Campground

    June 11, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 77 °F

    We originally planned to stay at Park Creek Campground, possibly boondocking further in away from the established campground. The snow melt is happening so much later than normal this year. The creeks and rivers are so high!

    When we pulled up, the bridge was out due to water. The whole campground was closed. 😖

    IOverlander's app showed another campground not far that had boondocking sites by a creek. So we decided to forgo the established CG and make our way down the gravel forest road.

    Remember I said they had a lot of water? Remember what happens to gravel roads during wet seasons? Yes, washouts and washerboard road. Goblin did fine but Cherub was suffering hard.

    We got to a cattle crossing and decide to turn around as the CG was still a mile away.

    Ended up paying 22.00 for East Fork CG. 22.00 for a pit toilet and a picnic table. At least the pit toilet was super clean.

    Very quiet, beautiful stars, and you can hear the creek rushing in the background. It got pretty cold during the night. Probably in the low 40s.

    Pagosa Spring Healing Waters Spa

    June 12, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 68 °F

    The town of Pagosa Springs is such a cute little town. iOverlander app said there was a free hot spring here. We went off in search of it. The photo of the lady sitting near a nice creek is what the creek usually looks like. The video is what it is today. The free hot spring is flooded.

    There are a bunch of spa resorts and bath houses. We chose Healing Waters for a soak in their hot tub, which is 100% mineral spring water from their own well. Temps hovered around 110 in the water. Super relaxing but now we smell the sulphur lol.

    Durango to Silverton

    June 12, 2019 in the United States ⋅ 🌫 61 °F

    Heres some sites of the drive from Durango to Silverton. We went down a back road in Silverton and had a little picnic lunch with the mountains in the background. Stopped at a little brew pub called Golden Block Brewery. Pretty nice place.

    Pulled over so Baylor and Chico could play in the snow. Chico was not a fan.

    Gunnison River overlook

    June 12, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 79 °F

    We had no plans on where to camp on our "zero" day. We initially pulled into this city park in Montrose, CO. Free and a bathroom with running water right near a great park with an amazing river walking path. Unfortunately since they allowed 1 night free camping, there seemed to be too many unsavory elements. We checked iOverlander and saw two camping spots on some BLM land on our route and only about an hour away.

    After a strenuous uphill climb thru some pretty rough roads we made it to the top and we rewarded with a campsite and million dollar views!

    Great Salt Lake

    June 13, 2019 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 73 °F

    Gonna hang out for the night. Gonna bring Chico and Baylor down to the beach later. Paula and I are gonna grill some steaks and have a few 3.4 beers. Lol

    Edited to add: we were on the beach for about 2 minutes. Sand fleas like I've never seen and no-see-ums in the air. Me and the dogs are huddled under the bug tent, waiting for dusk so they go away. 😳😫Read more
