A Weekend at Lake Conchas

Lake Conchas, "Out the Rear Window"

Lake Conchas, “Out the Rear Window” site #19

With winter storms still complicating our return to Colorado, on Saturday we opted to move a bit further north to Lake Conchas near Tucumcari, NM.  We spent time at Lake Conchas last year waiting out storms along the front range, and decided it would be a good spot for that again this year.  Arriving on Saturday afternoon, sunny skies and warm temperature slowly  gave way to a cold, windy drizzle that lasted through Sunday evening.  But, temps weren’t all that much warmer in Roswell, so at least we’re another 200 miles closer to home.

We’re parked in site #19, a cliff-side site that enjoys a beautiful view of the lake and northern skies.  There’s virtually no over-the-air TV at Conchas, so one of our first tasks on arrival was to set-up the DirecTV satellite.  Utilizing a free 30 day demo of HBO we enjoyed a very relaxing rainy weekend of movies.

After 2 nights at Conchas, Monday morning dawns as a beautiful sunny, wind-free day.  Just the right kind of day to continue our trek north.  From here we’re bound for Lathrup State Park right outside of Walsenburg..  More from there…
