Now you can visit the great state parks in West Texas and New Mexico. I assume you are in the Army?

Ahhhhh.....Petersburg. We are up here in Hanover. Some other places you may want to consider camping......Camp Hatteras on the Outer Banks.

Yes, my husband is military. We're in South Chesterfield - just a quick shot up the road to Pocahontas campgrounds. Thanks for the tip, Trevor43 - I'll check out Camp Hatteras!

New Mexico has some beautiful locations, and I'm super excited to be just a days drive from northern Arizona, too. Prescott and Sedona are some of my favorite places. I'm not familiar with West Texas, though. We spent 4 years at Fort Hood (Central Texas), but this will be our first experience with the El Paso area - aside from driving through quickly. So, if you have any suggestions for places to visit, jpetrey, I'd love to hear them!

Cheers,
Autumn

Saraswati, I also want to thank you and your husband for your service!! THANK YOU!

And, I'd also recommend White Sands National Monument in New Mexico - just a short drive from Ft. Bliss. White Sands National Monument - White Sands National Monument There's nothing like sledding down a sand dune!!!!

FarFromStock,

Your support is greatly appreciated - thank you kindly. I've never been to White Sands, though I hear it's pretty there - I'll definitely add it to my list of places.

Cheers,
Autumn
