Camping Around Grants, NM

Last weekend, we went camping at a state park around Grants, NM.  While there, we did some exploring along some national forest roads, and found a charming little national forest campground, called Coal Mine Campground.  It's very small (only 15-20 campsites), and is closed for the season, but we walked around it to check it out.  The above image is of quite a substantial bridge built over a wash that seems to lead to other walking/hiking trails.  When we do camp here, we'll definitely have to check it out!

Lots of pine trees in the campground (I'm guessing we were at about 8000 feet in altitude).  i just loved the way the sun light just played off the pine needles.

As we explored on from the campsite, we came to this little clearing that offered a great view of a very peaky mountain!  I don't know the name of the mountain, but it's perfect peak just caught my attention.
