Southwest Lazy Daze Campout
September 29 through October 3
Drove to Mountainair for the Southwest Lazy Daze campout.
On the way, we stopped at the Gran Quivira, the largest of the Salinas pueblos. It was an important trade center for many years before and after, the arrival of the Spanish.
Picked up our mail at the post office. Had lunch at the Ancient Ways Restaurant. The campground is the Manzano Mountain SP. Our friends Don & Carol Ashley are here. Carol Ashley taught Carol how to play Mexican Train. They also took us to the Caravan Club Campout at La Paz, AZ last year. Two wonderful people. There were 12 LD’s here. Some of the people we knew; some are new friends. Had a pot luck dinner, a social hour each night then a pot luck breakfast on the last day. As always, we had a wonderful time. One couple from Scottsdale, AZ invited us to their house for Thanksgiving. We’ll see.
