We arrived at Heron Lake State south of Charma, NM which is close to the border of NM/CO.
Our trip here was just a two hour drive from Santa Fe, but through a small thunder storm. One of the motorhome's wiper blades fell off the the wind was so strong one of the top MaxAir covers was ripped almost completely off. We heard something making a noise on the top of the Motorhome but didn't know what it was until we stopped. Joe climbed off and removed it as it was just hanging by one screw. Oh the trials and tribulations of RVing. Our spot here is what we really like. See picture attached. Some of the campsites have water views. This one didn't, but we were surrounded by trees and it was very private. You could hardly see the rvs next to us.
The next day we spent reconnoitering the area. This park is known for its excellent sailing, kayaking and canoeing, fishing, hiking and cross country skiing in winter. Lake Heron State Park has been designated a "quite lake" where boats operate at no wake speeds only. When we went out in our kayaks, we didn't see anyone else where we were. This was on Friday. It looked a little busier on the weekend. Had a great paddle. Could definitely come back here again for a longer stay. We saw some deer and other wildlife while on our paddle.
