This is the Visitor's Center:
This is the park - there are only 29 spaces, the six on the right are dry camping spots, and the others are hook-ups. All the spaces have nice views of the valley and mountains.
WINs. I walked over and was invited to join them, and also participate in the dance lesson after happy hour. I did both, and had a Merengue dance lesson - thanks Bill!
The next day, Tuesday, the group was driving over to border to The Pink Store in Palomas, Mexico for lunch and a little dancing. I don't have a passport, and said I couldn't go, but they said you can walk over and get back into the US with just your driver's license, so that's what I did. It worked out fine, no problems getting back across the border. They did type my info into their computers, though, so don't try this if you have any outstanding issues connected to your driver's license.
I brought a small camera, but I forgot I took the SD card out of it, and I didn't have much memory left, so I only got two good photos. So, here are the two photos from inside the Pink Store:

The Pink Store. Lots more photos on their website.
On Tuesdays they have a special - the first Margarita is free with lunch - so most of us got the freebie. Lunch was good and reasonably priced, and their water is filtered. I had some and felt fine, so that was good to know. I was able to dance a little - I haven't danced in - probably - 20 years, and I did pretty well considering. We had a small group of WINs, but the LOWs were there, too, and they had a huge group. The LOWs have an RV park in Deming, nearby, and I guess a lot of their members come every Tuesday for lunch.
It was fun - hopefully I'll get a chance to go back another day. :)
Today the WINs are out on a road trip to a ghost town/mining camp and tomorrow they are geocaching - these guys keep pretty busy and have a variety of activities. Non-members can attend some activities to see if they'd like to join the WINs. They seem like a great group, and it's something to think about, that's for sure! They are leaving on Friday and if my mail arrives tomorrow, I'll be joining them.
From me and Katie, have a great Thursday, everybody! :)
