We're dying to take our little family and the new Wolf Pup TT on its maiden voyage. We live in the Albuquerque area and don't want to venture out to far as mentioned this is our first trip.
If familiar with early spring in New Mexico, the state is warming but it's still cold here. We just drove up to the Durango/Pagosa Springs CO area this past weekend for a ski trip and Northern NM has a ton of snow and temps are still well below freezing.
I suppose the plan is to head south, within a 4-5 hours drive. We'd like an area near water but its not necessary and possibly something fun for us to do with the kiddos (fishing, hiking, playground) both of which are under 5 years.
Not sure if I want to do the whole Elephant Butte thing but a few places that have popped up on my radar are:
Percha Dam State Park
Caballo Lake State Park
Valley of Fire
Please let me know if any of these are out of season. We are accustomed to dry camping (in a tent
) we have a new generator and don't necessarily need hookups, especially since this will only be a 2-3 night trip for us.
Any insight, recommendations, or ideas are welcome!
