On The Road - Part 2

We stayed at the Bosque Birdwatchers RV Park in San Antonio, New Mexico, outside of Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge.  The first evening we were here we drove into the Refuge.  There is a nice boardwalk were we walked for a little while then drove around the Refuge.  The roads were quite muddy from all the rain and we were surprised that they were still open.

That really is the color of the sky!
It rained all night and was still raining when we got up.  We decided to go to the “famous” Owl Cafe in San Antonio for breakfast.  I don’t get the attraction to this cafe.  It’s very dark (it’s also a bar), there is only one breakfast item, about 6 lunch items (all hamburgers/chicken burgers) and about 6 dinner items.  Their claim-to-fame is a green chili burger.  Since I don’t like green chili, I guess this place won’t be on our return list.

Since it was still raining, after breakfast, we headed into Socorro.  We stopped at the Walmart, which looked very small from the outside.  But, surprise, they had the best selection of yarn I have found at any Wallyworld!

I can always use yarn and was happy to pick up a few skeins.
We headed back out to the Refuge visitor center and were told that road had been closed due to heavy rain.  So, back to the RV where we watched it rain all afternoon.

The next morning, after it finally quit raining, we wiped off the slides, hooked up and headed for Capitan.  We found an RV park, pulled in and were directed to a site only to get stuck in the mud.  While we were waiting for the owner to pull us out, we decided once we got out, we would just keep on going to Roswell and look for an RV park there.

Next Time - Roswell, New Mexico


  1. Not off to such a great start...kinda like our trip. Hope it gets better. Safe travels.

  2. I hope the weather cooperates when I pull out of here on Thursday.

  3. Sorry to hear the weather isn't being nice. We took I-80 across and missed the rain so far.

  4. Manny's Buckhorn... across the street from the Owl is much better... only if you like green chile cheeseburgers. Beautiful colors of yarn.. I'll be looking for the photos of what you make of it all. Safe travels!

  5. Sounds like a lot of us are having to deal with bad weather.
    Safe travels to everyone!
