New Mexico, camping Oct 11, 2014
I was taking my new wife Sylvia on a New Mexico (NM) vacation. First I take her to my secret mountain top hideaway at Canjilon Lakes in the Carson National Forest. (Take US 84 from Santa Fe and go an hour or two. You really have to be looking to see the sign for New Mexico 115 and turn right for 3 miles untill you hit a tee in the road at Canjilon...the town. From the tee you turn left on FS 110 and enter the Carson Nat. Forest. Take 110 for 8 miles and find FS 129, and turn left up this paved road to near the top of Canjilon mountain. There are two campgrounds (then $5) and three lakes. There are few campers so we have the camp to ourselves in the large aspen trees. The next morning we spent time at the beautiful lakes. There were fishermen in those lakes.

A day later we stopped at Chama, NM to see the historic Chama railroad.

We are really getting a good start to our vacation.
