Home in Davis Mountains State Park for a few nites

Mule deer doe in the campground

Other critters seen around our campsite


We had a fairly short & uneventful drive from Carlsbad to Davis Mtns State Park. All of the oil activity between Carlsbad, NM & Pecos, TX was really interesting. We were on small state highways with the exception of 2 miles on I-10.

The Davis Mountains are a beautiful area & this state park is great. As we were setting up the trailer, we spotted a mule deer doe grazing in the brush near our campsite & took that as a welcome to her territory. Ha! Lots of birds & lizards here, too. We're looking forward to exploring this area in the next couple of days. More later...
