Rock Hound State Park

Thursday the 23rd of May we head out early. A coffee at McDonalds, the boys pushing in close in case I order a sausage McMuffin—I don’t—and I catch I-10 (Freeway! UGH!) to Deming NM where I search for the dog park.
We find it pretty easily, and it is a beauty. No less than eleven mature shade trees, mulberry and juniper, make the small dog side a shady oasis. The big dog side looks equally as shady. Having it all to themselves this early in the morning, The Chiweenie Brothers run full tilt until they can run no more.

With two exhausted wiener dogs napping, I hit Wally for supplies, and then drive the short distance to Rock Hound State Park where I purchase a New Mexico State Parks Pass good for an entire year of camping, up to two weeks at a time, in their parks’ primitive campsites. Primitive being tables with shade covers, fire rings, and a garbage can. Water is available and showers, too. All for the sum of only $225 . Did I mention this is for an entire year? *smiles*.
