Aug 16, 2012 - Bluewater Lake SP, NM - Enjoying Our Last Few Days Here

(Ron Writing) After a couple more very relaxing days here at Bluewater we decided it’s probably time to move on. Our refrigerator is looking pretty empty, the pantry needs restocking, and the nearest grocery store is about 25 miles east of here. There’s not even a convenience store with basics like eggs and bread any closer than that. Today we defrosted the freezer and did a few other odd jobs in between our walks and relaxing outdoors enjoying the beautiful weather and surroundings. This is certainly on our list of places we’d like to...

Aug 14, 2012 - Bluewater Lake SP, NM - A Short Hike

(Ron Writing) Yesterday morning the weather was beautiful – perfect day for a little hike. We set out on the only trail in this park. It starts right at the campground, switchbacks down into the canyon of Bluewater Creek, and then continues a about a mile to the base of the dam. Once down in the canyon it’s necessary to cross Bluewater Creek by doing sort of a “balance beam” walk on some logs lying across the creek. Elena didn’t feel too comfortable doing this and we forgot to bring a walking stick so we just hiked a short distance along...

We’re seeing a consistent weather pattern since we arrived. It’s clear and sunny in the morning, then by early afternoon it gets cloudy and stormy with short periods of gusty wind and perhaps a few drops of rain. It really cooled...

Aug 10, 2012 - Bluewater State Park, NM - Camping in New Mexico

(Ron Writing) We left Flagstaff this morning after a stop at the local Sam’s Club for fuel. It was a nice day for driving with hardly any wind and temperatures of around 95° to 100° most of the time. Our drive east on I-40 was mostly through high desert of 5,000’ to 6,000 feet. The scenery got very beautiful as we neared the New Mexico border with the large red sandstone cliffs all around us. We continued east on I-40 past Gallup, NM and then over the Continental Divide. About 70 miles into New Mexico we exited I-40 at NM-412. NM-412 is a...
