We’ve been here since Friday and it’s been a good place to be.
Our site and surroundings
Taking our walk to the beach . . .
We pass these flowering bushes that smell very nice . . .
We ventured out to check out a near by town Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. I wouldn’t want to have to write that as my address, it’s kind of long.
We then went to check out The Elephant Butte Dam Overlook.
Construction of Elephant Butte Dam began in 1911 and was completed on 1916. The dam was built to provide flood control and irrigation down-river. Upon completion, Elephant Butte Dam was reported to be the largest irrigation enterprise in the United States. The largest body of water in New Mexico was also created by the construction of this Dam and also the state’s biggest park.
Checking out the dam and where our campsite is by the Rio Grande. We had a great weekend at Elephant Butte State Park.
