First stop was to check out the "ghost" town of White Oaks. The bar in town is only open Fridays through Sunday. Took a couple photos of the old buildings. Amazing there is a large, 2-story school house out here in nowhere.
From there,I checked out Valley of Fires Recreational Area. Very different to the VOF near Las Vegas, this valley gets its name from the volcanic activity in the area. My Seniors Pass was only good for half price entrance. Bought a ghost towns book at the visitor's center and visited with the attendant. There was not much to do see there than the lava field and many places to park RVs or have a picnic.
Was time to high-tail it home. Took US 380 to I-25 on up to Rio Rancho. Home a little after 1 pm. Grabbed the mail and processed the day's photos. Exhausted, so napped. Unpacking the car and starting laundry can wait until tomorro
