Rio De Las Vacas F. S. Camp Ground

The steady climb up Hwy 126 takes us up to over 7000 feet so it’s nice and cool compared to the valley below.  The Chiweenie Brothers, heads out the window, give our new temporary home the once over.

I back in, then begin getting The Boys’ cabled run set up.  I like them to have as much freedom as possible and the 25ft coated cable allows them some wandering room while still being in compliance with the ‘dogs must be leashed rule’.  Once the cable is looped around two trees and secured I get the two wiggle worms on their leashes and the leashes attached to the cable.  I begin setting up camp.

This camp ground consists of a small loop that contains 15 or so campsites.  There is a vault toilet and water.  Each site has a picnic table, fire ring, and paved parking. We get lucky 13, a nice shaded site in the afternoon.

The water pump also serves as a good upper body workout device!

The campground loop itself serves well as a good cardio walk as it is not level, but there is also a trail that goes back into the forest.  Wildflowers are abloom, too.

The Boys spend time digging for squirrels and chasing lizards,

and these cute little golden mantle squirrels abound!

We thoroughly enjoy our almost two weeks here in the mountains near Cuba NM.

  1. Shawna, you are an amazing adventurer. New things and traveling with those boys. Love the picture of them in the van. haha. So cute. It doesn’t look like very many people in the campgrounds there with you. It has been so cold here in burney in the morning.
