Santa Rosa Lake SP

Saturday, October 28

It’s chilly this morning – about 28°, brrrr!  I eat a quick breakfast and then break camp to drive down to Santa Rosa Lake State Park.  Santa Rosa is on I-40 which is the route I will take when I start on my way to Florida Monday morning.  Since it is a little further south, it will also be somewhat warmer.

After studying the New Mexico Benchmark Atlas and checking weather forecasts, I decided to travel south to Las Vegas, NM where Storrie Lake State Park is located.  It’s about 75 miles away but almost 2,000 feet lower in elevation.  The weather forecast looks very pleasant for the next 10 days.  A couple cooler days, but not bad.

A Month in South Dakota

After leaving Devils Tower National Monument, I head to Rapid City, SD where I’ll stay about a month.

Also, I have a few minor warranty repairs on the Nash that need to be taken care of.  I haven’t been stationary long enough to see to them up until now. Read More
