Heron Lake State Park, New Mexico – Day 46

The motorhome is still parked at Heron Lake State Park about 20 miles south of Chama, New Mexico while I am recovering from my May 27th accident.

More good news regarding my recovery. Yesterday, for the sixth day in a row, I managed to go without my elastic chest bandage for six hours. I continue taking Ibuprofen, icing my ribcage area 2-3 times a day. The doctors told me to expect 6-12 weeks for recovery. The accident occurred nine weeks and six days ago. Can you tell I’m ready for the recovery to be finished and be back on the road again?

A few days back I drove the Bronco over to the south (bottom) to neighboring (lower left) El Vado Lake. My current campsite is shown by the “X”.

Yesterday’s photos showed El Vado Lake and Dam. Today’s photos are looking South from the top of the dam at the Rio Chama…

Here are some photos that I took…

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

Heron Lake State Park, New Mexico – Day 18

As a holder of the New Mexico Annual Camping Permit (non-resident $225), I can stay up to three weeks in a park which I am currently doing here at Heron Lake.

In the day before yesterday’s Blog entry I mentioned that I had my best day physically since the May 27th accident. So much so, that I was able to climb down and back up the 600 feet to the Rio Chama and suspension bridge below. Two weeks ago because of my physical state I could only look down and take photos from the overlook and river below.

The locals tell me that New Mexico is in a several year-long drought and is clearly shown by the level of the water. The bridge was built by the Youth Conservation Corp in 1980.

Yesterday I showed photos during my descent, today I’ll show the river and suspension bridge…

Here are some of the photos that I took…

Enjoying and photographing bridges is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!
