Eagle Nest Lake SP
It was only 38 miles to my next destination at Eagle Nest Lake State Park. This is a pic of Eagle Nest prior to ascending the mountain.
Eagle Nest is a small town with no stop lights. The people are very friendly there.
I then settled in at Eagle Nest Lake State Park. As in Cimarron Canyon there were no hook-ups at this park. There were many spots available when I came in so I had my choice. All the sites have a wonderful view of the lake and surrounding mountains. It is very open there with no trees. Here is a pic of the town from my campsite.
Lots of big beautiful clouds
The clouds overhead were really big and beautiful. A storm came thru and rained on my parade the first night I was there. I was forced to cook inside rather than on my barbeque. But it was so nice hearing the rain drops on my roof.
Here are a couple of pics of the sunset. How awesome is that.
Over the weekend there were a lot of fishermen with all kinds of boats. This looked like a great fishing spot. I really liked this pic of the fishermen in their boat on the lake.
I stayed at Eagle Nest Lake SP for 3 nights and then decided to move higher up into the mountains at Coyote Creek State Park. It will only be a short drive to get there. I am really saving on gas so far as I filled up when I left Sugarite and have more the 1/2 full still. I REALLY LIKE THAT!!!
Looks like another beautiful spot. What kind of temperatures are you having?
The weather is great! It I’d in the high70’a today.Will go up to 80 tomorrow.
Great photos. I love the sunset pictures. Sounds like a wonderful place to be.
The clouds and sunsets were GORGEOUS!
