When we arrived in the Albuquerque area we spent the first three nights at the Sandia Casino doing a little parking lot camping. After that we moved out to Cochiti Lake for the 14 day limit. During our time at the lake we have made several trips into Santa Fe to visit friends. And one day our friends Joy and Dave came to visit us at the lake.
We've had a little weather while here. It has rained a few times on us at lake level but snowed in the mountains behind us. I'm sure my readers Greg and Karen got some of that snow as they are just up the mountain from us.

Besides rain we have had wind. I don't mean a slight breeze I mean full on wind gusting up to 40 mph. The worst wind was last saturday afternoon and night, which was a little challenging for the weekend campers in tents. We watched one of our neighbors tie their tent to their car and our other neighbors took theirs down and slept in their car. The wind is still blowing and is predicted to continue through this week.
Did a little back roads driving.
We'll be heading back into ABQ for a few more days.
Be back soon.
Evie and Joy
