Here we are on the way to the campsite to drop off most everyones gear before hitting the trails for the day.
Our campsite was a secluded and little known mesa overlooking Alamogordo, so our gear would be safe there as we headed out for the day.
Our first trail lead us up Horse Ridge to another beautiful overlook of the basin below.
Back on the trail.
We were threatened all day with these rains, however they seemed to miss us and our campsite the whole weekend. Ok, except for one little downpoor while hiking back from a waterfall.
It was a great day to be out exploring the area.
After a full day on the trails it was back to camp and AJ cooked up some great ribs!!! Everyone ate well and finished setting up their sites for the night.
As night fell the campfire began roaring as we all settled in for an evening of beverages and good conversation. The lights of the city below just added to the great location. As the night lengthened it was off to bed for a well deserved sleep.
Morning came with coffee and breakfast burritos, what a way to start the day!!!
It was a beautiful sunrise as we all began packing up and getting ready for another day of exploring.
The day was spent out on the trails and enjoying the beautiful scenery.
Our final stop for the weekend was Bluff Springs Falls, this is a year round waterfall approx 50' high. It also helps to feed the Rio Pensco River which winds it's way along the road to the falls.
It was a great weekend, meeting old friends and making new friends. If you can not make it out the banner says, West Texas/Southern Mew Mexico Military Jeepers. I sure will miss these guys when we leave NM, but thats the great thing, MJ is a Nationwide organization so we'll be meeting up with more Military Jeepers all over the country, as well as many other people from both other off road and RV fourms.
