2015 Trip to Alaska
A short travel day on NM 54, US 70 & I 25. I passed, but didn't stop at the White Sands National Monument since I stopped there on my trip in 2012. I did stop to take a photo of some interesting mountains across from the White Sands Missile range. I stopped for the day at Leasburg State Park, site 21, a water & electric site for $14.00. They have a mix of reserved sites & open ones, however the open, first come area is small, mostly non electric and there was only one site left. I drove on to the reserved area & found they have signs at each site that let you stay one night if it isn't already reserved.
I reset my MPG counter on the RAV4 since I drove over 250 miles over the days at Valley of Fires without the trailer. So, for the first 2700 miles I averaged 13.5MPG, about 1.5MPG worse than my long time average.
Very warm this afternoon, around 85°F at 3:00. Almost ran the AC, but since I spent most of the afternoon outside, I just ran the Maxxfan. The picnic tables have shade covers which were nice to sit under & read. I took a shower around 4:30, read for a bit more, then as the late afternoon color got interesting, took some photos of the desert plants in the campground.
