Happy Easter! And more campground photos.

Happy Easter, everyone!  I hope you all had a great day with the people you love.  And a delicious Easter dinner, too.

I woke up the other morning to the most beautiful setting moon.  

My connection to the Internet hasn't been good, so I haven't posted as much as I'd like.  I have a million photos of this place!  I have unlimited data through Verizon, but I REALLY used it last month, and I don't know if they've cut me back or if moving to this new site is not as good for the Verizon signal.  Anyway, I'll try to get this published. :)

I met another blogger the other day when Katie and I were walking - Glenda.  She and her husband have a Casita, and are traveling with two cats and a beautiful dog.  They were parked in the Capercornus site that I liked so much.


We had a nice conversation, and Glenda pointed me in the direction of the grinding holes that I was looking for, and also told me about a little petroglyph - she said it's called the Spanish Cross.

Isn't their dog, Kira, beautiful?

It was nice meeting you, Glenda!  Safe travels.

Katie and I continued on and I took a photo of the Spanish Cross high up on one of the large rocks:

Then we found this sign, and started walking up the hill to look for the Grinding Stones.

I didn't see any more signs, so we just walked on and turned to the right and this is what we found:

They looked like grinding stones, but I'm not sure if they are the official ones.  :)

We walked all over above the campground, and ended up at the other end across from the electrical sites.  It was a long walk - for us - and very interesting, checking out all the different rock formations high above the campground.  It was also a very easy walk - I was surprised when I saw how high we were.  I'll tell you, kids would really love this place.

Our Ravens arrive a little after 7 pm every evening and just sit there, roosting together.  I woke up at 6:30 and peeked out the window and they were still there, but by 7 am they were gone.  Every evening they come back to sit on their rock, and in the morning they are gone.  It's pretty cool to have them there.

Ravens in the sunset sky.

This little guy has also been around lately, too - he doesn't stay long, just wanders through our site and continues on into the desert brush.  Still, I'm always happy to see him.

Welcome to our newest Follower, Sandi Ratke!  Sandi doesn't have a blog, but does plan to get into RVing.  She says she is "Still looking for the right RV for me.  I enjoy reading about the adventures of other RVers."  Sandi, I hope you find that perfect RV and have as much fun as I'm having!  Let me know if you start a blog, I'd love to see how you're doing.  Thank you for following along with me and Katie - Welcome Aboard!

From me and Katie, have a good day, everyone!  :)


  1. That NM sunset sure is pretty....but I love the ravens the best!

    Isn't it so much fun to get outside and enjoy nature? Glad you had a nice walk!

    Have a great week!


  2. Love the moon shot! I like NM, hope to be able to spend some time there in the future. Fun to meet a fellow blogger too!

  3. Happy Easter to you and Katie. Wow your moon shot what a picture.
    Looks like you could reach out and touch it. Oh the dogs were in their crate today and they did really good. We were so surprised. A good buy for us after all.

  4. Those are some really interesting pictures. Love the one of the ravens...and the moon set! What a great life you and Katie are living.

  5. As usual, great pics. I used to have a Keeshound. She was a wonderful family member and my husband favorite.

  6. Love your photos! You have a good eye for great compositions.
    Happy Easter to you too! Miss the desert already but love to be home as well.

  7. Sure am enjoying your beautiful pictures. We have been through Deming so many times and definitely need to stop at this park next time.

  8. I tried to get that moon, but failed miserably! Yours made me gasp in admiration! City of Rocks is a gem - so peaceful and so underrated. Wish I was there right now!!!

  9. Wow it looks absolutely beautiful there! What a place to spend Easter.
    Thanks for posting the pictures - it's like we were there with you.

  10. LOVE the ravens. Sort of nice that they come back every night.

  11. Because the horizontal and vertical parts, of the cross, are equal, it reminds me of the Crusaders Cross. That became the center of- what is known as- the Jerusalem Cross.


Thank you for your comments - we LOVE them!
