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!!!
