Ruidoso, Pie Town, and Mesa

I’m writing this entry from our beautiful boondocking spot near Sedona, AZ. We stayed in our usual site at River View RV Park in Ruidoso, NM for a few nights. This park only has a few sites available to overnight RV guests and only 1 of those we can fit into. But we can walk to the downtown shops and restaurants so that an advantage to us and worth paying for a private park. 

We usually visit Grace O’Malley’s Irish Pub while in Ruidoso but we arrived to find it our of business. So we found a new place for afternoon cocktails. 

   
    
 Tall Pines Beer and Wine Garden is our new favorite spot. It opened in the last few months and the owners have done a great job making it a very inviting. We stayed a few hours visiting and sampling. Over the next few weeks, some of Sharon’s photos will be on display and available for sale there.

From Ruidoso, we traveled on to Pie Town, NM for the next couple days. Yes, it’s really called Pie Town. We boondocked in the free city park. 

There’s really not much to say about Pie Town. We did have pie and coffee at a local cafe. We went for a hilly 3 mile run. The place really seemed pretty dead. But it was free, quiet, and we slept well.

   
    
 
The park roads are pretty soft sand but very manageable as long as it’s dry I would imagine. 

We weren’t sure what to make of this but it appears someone once lived here.

 

   
    
 

We took hwy 60 from Pie Town into Mesa , AZ. We parked for 2 nights at Sun Life RV Resort. It really wasn’t our style but we wanted to visit some dear friends who are workampers there. 

   
 
That catches us up so far. Next stop… Sedona. We’ll enjoy this spot for a few more days.

   
   
Till next time… Brian

Caprock Canyon State Park, Quitaque, Texas

This is our first stop along our journey eventually ending in Northern Minnesota for the summer. We love the hiking here and it’s only a couple hundred miles from my parents home (our home base). So they came along with their travel trailer to do some camping with us before we departed Texas. 

It’s always hard on them (and us) when we first leave knowing we won’t be seeing each other for several months. Over all though, I think we spend more quality time with them since we’ve been fulltiming the last 5 years. 

Our next stop…. somewhere in New Mexico. 

Enjoy the pics from Caprock Canyon.
