Three Rivers

Once you leave the highway it is several miles up to the camping areas and to the water. It is a beautiful drive with quiet all around.
Adobe ruins of an old home along the way.

Beginning to get some altitude, and out of the mesquite into the pinon.

And then into the Juniper. New Mexico has 6 out of the 7 climate zones.

Off to the side, hidden from the road are the streams. It is generously called 3 Rivers, who knows maybe they once were. They have the run off from Sierra Blanca and are icy cold all summer. Perfect for storing watermelon while camping.

The rocks in the stream make alligator skin patterns in the water...mesmerizing to watch.
