Hiking Bandelier National Monument

Had family in from out of State and took them hiking at Bandelier National Monument. I take it for granted I have so many amazing things to see so close to my home Bandelier National Monument  is just an hours drive from my house and  it’s a very amazing place. It was in the low 90’s during the hike and everyone in the group ran out of water pretty fast on the trail. I knew better lucky I had brought several liters and was able to fill water bottles during the hike for everyone. We did about 2 miles, but with 90 degree heat, zero humidity, and constant canyon winds you can go through a lot of water in a short period of time. Always prepared I say. Below are just some of the things you can see at Bandelier National Monument, old ruins, petroglyphs and can even climb into some of the restored cliff dwellings. If you’re ever in New Mexico it’s something to see.

Fishing at El Vado Lake

I can’t believe I actually got to go fishing, after trying all summer the cards fell in place and my son and I loaded up the truck and headed out to El Vado State park. A pretty good day of fishing too, 1 large mouth bass and 14 brown trout, got them all with spinner lures right under the dam. Here’s a picture of our spot.photo (8)
