3/11 Rockhound State Park, Deming, NM

Yes, I am headed east and back home.  Spent a few days here, but did not find any good rocks. It was a pretty drive along I-10 getting here, however.


The campground is on a slight slope at the base of a mountain.  Nice view from my site up to the mountain and over the desert plains in the distance.

Those mountains in the distance are a very long way away!  And there isn't much in between, either.

This is a long view of the campground, from the road to Deming.  Love the isolation and quiet.  Well, except for the construction around the bathroom facilities that starts at 7:30 am!

I took a 1.1 mile walk on a hiking trail that circles the campground. 
 

Another view of the campground from the hiking trail.

 
Even though there has been hardly any rain, there are still some small wildflowers in bloom, but sometimes you really have to look for them:



 
This was a whole field of little yellow something-or-others.  Lots of birds on the trail, but I have no idea what they were.
