Camping at Abiquiu Lake

Last week, we camped at Abiquiu Lake Recreation Area, in northwest New Mexico, near Ghost Ranch (where Georgia O'Keefe lived and created for many years). We had a beautiful campsite at the campground there. The above photo is one of the views that we had from our campsite.

This view looks out over another campground in the recreation area. Since we were camping during the week late in September, the campground was not very crowded at all! What a perfect time to camp - it almost seemed like all of this just belonged to us......and it did for a few days!!

The very cool thing about this view was that the mountain in the background is that it's the Pedernal, which Georgia O'Keefe painted quite frequently. It was really quite amazing to me to just think that I was sitting there enjoying something that inspired one of the greatest artists of our time (at least in my opinion!)!

And, at the end of the day, we enjoyed a beautiful sunset as we sat in front of our campfire. Life at its best!
