Sunday morning we woke up to lots of fog but were still on the road by 8:30 am and headed for our next destination, Elephant Butte State Park. The drive past White Sands National Monument was so foggy we could not even see any of the dunes, oh well. Once we climbed up through the pass of the Organ Mountains the fog broke and we were able to see the dramatic peaks although still some fog. Very beautiful. Once we started down the other side to Las Cruces it was back to sunny skies.

|View from our campsite with the Rio Grande River tributaries.|
After setting up and having lunch we decided to take a short drive down the road towards Truth or Consequences and check out a few of the "primitive campsites" nearby. There were tons of spots for truck and campers/tents and a few really good motorhome spots if we so desired right by the lake.
|I even noticed these two beauties fishing.|
|All by myself! What a view.|
|Yup this spot would do!|
