Heading west from Texas, just into New Mexico we saw the sign (left turn) I have an old book that says $5/ any sz. rig.

How far from #380 is it....? no miles on the sign.

The other Gold Mine is that if you have a Golden Access Pass and/or you are disabled or 62 or older you pay 1/2 price. At all BLM,USFS,NP,or Army Corps of Engineers facility.

Thanks, we did see the road you turn down, just wondering how far you travel down that road before you get to the BLM land? is it along way back in there?
We are driving right now just getting to the mountains...Sierra Blanca is sure Blanca this morning !

These are BLM and are very nice and just off paved HWYs ** Valley of Fires BLM ** Datil Well BLM

** Aguirre Spring BLM But this one is not suited for your rig. Sign

** Misc. Sites NM AZ TX.

I have not been to Mescalero Sands. I can not find a link stating how far the drive is from the HWY.

Also a birding area in the spring. A video from Mescalero Sands - White Sands - El Paso Area Sandhills.

City of Rocks State Park is neat as well. City of Rocks

Ruidoso & Cloudcroft areas

We visit Datil every year, there are at least three or four campsites that will hold a 34 ft fiver.
