We had just enough time to spend a few hours exploring Carlsbad Caverns National Park before driving north to catch our plane out of Albuquerque. Bats, anyone?
With a tight schedule, we had to choose between climbing the tallest peak in Texas or shorter hikes with more diversity. Decisions, decisions.
The long, curved beach. The yellow sand and clay cliffs. The quiet forest dappled with early spring sunshine. The views across Saratoga Passage. There are many things to love about Camano Island State Park, but this is my favorite: it was built in a day.
Sometimes you’ve just gotta get out of town. Cama Beach State Park fit the bill for a relaxing one-night escape.
With a 45-minute cushion built into our drive to the Phoenix airport, we wanted to visit the two units of Montezuma Castle National Monument. Lace up your sneakers and get ready to walk fast!
