How many people drive 37 miles into the mountains of New Mexico for the Memorial Day weekend? Answer: A lot.

Our little Apache Kid RV Park was full starting on Thursday; so was the overflow dry camping area. Both of these could have been booked three times over.

Most folks who come to stay and camp do so for the 'four – wheeling' exploration of the canyons. They head out in the morning with a lunch packed in their ATV and return about 4PM; dust covered and happy.










Around here the canyons are deep and rugged.


Even in this out of the way wilderness you can feel safe because Chloride is a gated community.
