Valley of Fires

Now this is a nice place. A scenic campground near Carrizozo overlooking a large lava flow. Paved roads and parking slots, visitor center, nice amenities. And it’s BLM, so cheap with a federal pass. It’s kinda “out there” near White Sands Missle Proving Grounds and the Trinity Site. A little tornado took off the roof off the local grocery store in town last Friday, and the nearest Wal-Mart is 50 miles away.

An excellent place to park for a night, tomorrow I head to San Antonio (NM) for a chili cheeseburger from the Owl Cafe. Only about 65 miles, but the US highway is subject to being closed when the missles are flying.
