If you had 1O days, no kids, and 2 dogs, where would you go?
It would start on a Sunday, about 10 AM
I would be sitting on the toilet, looking at the Sunday Sports section
The bathroom door....may not have been closed behind me
My eyes are open, but I am asleep
No one is calling me to "come here" - for at least an hour
I am at peace.
Are you saying I could do this for 10 days? in a row?
Where do I sign up?
Sorry, buddy, but you've got to walk the dang dogs! If you want to spend Sunday on the pot you better go to the pound on Saturday!
New Mexico is definitely a nice destination if you're willing to drive a little further. We liked the Taos area and spent almost a month there last year. There is history, scenery, mountains(nearby), wine and arts.
Lots of BLM land around Taos with scenic spots to stay with pooch. We stayed south of Taos inside the Rio Grande Gorge at Orilla Verde BLM (CLICKY) which we loved (pooch went swimming in the gorge each day), but if you want more open views the northern BLM at Wild Rivers is up ontop of the rim and has lots of space and trails too(CLICKY). If you want to be closer to the forest then look at some of the Forest Service campgrounds NE of Taos -> We particularly enjoyed Columbine Canyon (CLICKY) which has LOTS of forest hiking.
Taos is a great little town with a fabulous Pueblo and the beautiful Rio Grande Gorge. Also surrounding artist towns like Dixon (CLICKY) are well worth the visit.
Great scenic drives around there too such as The Enchanted Circle (CLICKY) and old ghost towns like Elizabethtown (CLICKY)
We totally loved the whole area. Could easily spent the whole summer there
Take a tour around Arkansas. They have some of the nicest parks around anywhere. You can't go wrong with any of them and the scenery is gorgeous!! I also second that Nina. New Mexico is awesome!! We love the Cloudcroft/Ruidoso area. Red River is nice too!
