Rio Grande del Norte

Valentine’s Day weekend is for camping. Last year it was the Great Sand Dunes, this year Rio Grande Del Norte National Monument.

I love off-season camping. The coldest temperature I saw from a tiny thermometer was 18 F/-7 C. We can both deal with chilly nights, since this time the reward was to once again to get to keep almost the whole place to ourselves.

    Chilly – but manageable (easy to say from the warmth of a cabin here!) It looks beautiful there, and all to yourselves? Wonderful.

      It was manageable. A bit muddy during the daytime where the sun was hitting, but the cold didn’t really bother us. We are getting better at this winter camping thing!
