Abo Ruins

July 1st . Up early as usual we are once again heading north on I-25. A stop at the very close Caballo Lake State Park (Come to find out Percha is part of Caballo) we can find no primitive spots with shade so we continue on.

We bypass Elephant Butte State Park as I have read many others’ views of this park and it is usually packed tight and the wind can be terrorizing at times. Not into packed parks so we keep going. A stop in Truth or Consequences which is a much smaller town than I imagined and find the library. It doesn’t open for another hour. I try McDonalds but can’t get a connection there either so we make a quick stop at Wally where they provide shaded parking in the way of solar panels!

I want a place to light over the Fourth of July weekend and it looks like Manzano Mountain State Park is up next. It’s almost a hundred miles, and we make a stop at the Abo Ruins on the way .
This place is wondrous—I love ruins and imaging what life was like for ancient peoples, and this place doesn’t disappoint.


Thanks for stopping by. Hugs, Shawna

Hello! Welcome to my blog. I am a full-time traveler, retired from a lifetime of different occupations, traveling the country with my two little dogs, Fries and Charlie B; The Chiweenie Brothers. You never know where you might find us, but if you do stop by and say hi . . . If you can get past the two best watch dogs in the universe! Happy Trails!

One thought on “Abo Ruins”

  1. Now that is a place I could spend lots of time and thought in. I too love ruins and even better combine them with stories from the elders that tell of the way they lived and how they built some of the places…I notice Charley was lizard hunting as usual…I bet he had a great time! Happy traveling!
