We stopped at Valley Of Fires Recreation Area near Carrizozo, NM. They have a very nice campground.
There are sites with Electric and water for $18 a night ($9 with the Golden Access Pass). There are some nice views from the campsites.
We hiked the 2/3 mile interpretive trail around on the lava flow next the the campground. This lava flow is the youngest in the continental states being only about 1500 years old. Even though it is so young, it has an amazing amount of plant life all over the rocks and in most every crevis.
It's overcast this evening and may even rain tonight and is much cooler that it has been recently.
