Heron Lake State Park, New Mexico – Day 15

As a holder of the New Mexico Annual Camping Permit (non-resident $225), I can stay up to three weeks in a park. If desired, electricity can be had for $4 a day. There are 38 parks in the system.

I still need more rest and recuperation from my May 27th accident. My right ribcage area remains slightly swollen and tender to the touch. I’m still experiencing the occasional popping in my chest with the associated mild burning pain. I remain taking Ibuprofen, icing my ribcage area 2-3 times a day and wearing an elastic bandage abound my chest.

The locals tell me this is an unseasonably hot summer. So much so, if I have outside things to do I need to get them done by 10:00 AM, after which time I retreat to the comfort of the air conditioning of the motorhome. My part-time travel companion Mary calls me the Weather Wimp, because I get uncomfortable when temperatures get over 75 degrees. I’ve decided to stay here until July 10th.

Yesterday I took about a eight-mile ride in the Bronco to an area of the park known as Rincon…a primitive camping area on the west-end of the lake.

Here are some of the photos that I took…

Enjoying beautiful state parks is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!
