A rare road trip with my girlfriend to show her some of my favorite places in southwestern New Mexico. Since Renee had horses, it was pretty much a full time job, so she couldn't break from the routine often (much to my dismay). Day one we went through Silver City and Pinos Altos to Lake Roberts, then down along the Mimbres Valley, and spent the night at Iron Creek campground. Next day was a hike to Hillsboro Peak, followed by the scenic drive down through Kingston and Hillsboro and on to I-25. Then up to Socorro for dinner, with the intention of getting to Datil Well CG for the second night. We were running out of daylight, so opted to camp at another of my favorites, Water Canyon CG in the Magdalena Mountains. Turns out this was the last time I got to enjoy camping in the original location along the creek bottom. The next year they built a new campground a short ways up the hill, and turned the old spot into day use only. :x I suspect one of the reasons for this was the beginning of the construction of the Magdalena Ridge Observatory up the road near South Baldy Peak. This is much like the scenario that played out during construction of the observatory on Mt. Graham: beef up the road for the heavy equipment and limit access. On day three we headed back to Tucson by way of Reserve, Glenwood, Mule Creek, and Safford. :)
