John (aka Mr. Poll) is going to be the Seasonal Camp Host at Heron Lake
in Northern New Mexico
. This location is centrally located for the NM, TX, AZ & CO folks who have shown interest in an informal get together. It's approximately:
90 miles NW of Taos, NM
125 miles SE of Durango, CO
170 miles SW of Walsenburg, CO
And those that are thinking of coming from more remote locations...sorry, if this isn't as convienient. Who knows...it may be on your way to ???
Anyway, there are several campgrounds at the lake there, Blanco Campground
being the one with the most co-located, hook-up sites, that can be reserved ahead of time.
For "Things To Do" there's the "no wake" lake for sailing & fishing, hiking trails and the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad
is nearby. And of course, the company of new found forum-friends!
Obviously it's still a bit too chilly there now, but it's not too early to start planning! I would think any time after mid-May would be a good time weather-wise, several have mentioned the need to coordinate with school schedules, maybe mid-June would be better.
Anyway, just wanted to start thinking about this again...it appears that reservations can be made starting in March. This is a State Park so the prices are reasonable, looks like about $20 per night. I'm sure John can help fill-in on some of the detail questions once he gets settled in.
Nothing is set in stone yet...just want to float the idea out there...any thoughts, ideas, suggestions???
