Are you tired of seeing photo after photo of my Airstream, beautiful campsites, and natural beauty?
Here’s another one.
And this campsite was free.
El Morro was just the second National Monument named by Theodore Roosevelt in 1906, following Devil’s Tower. After an overnight visit, I can see why it was near the top of his list.
Petroglyphs, 16th-19th century inscriptions, great hiking trail, a hidden waterhole…
And a dee-lux Puebloan apartment in the sky – Atsinna. Just imagine the 13th-century Zillow ad:
Then there’s the campground. It has nine sites. Nine. First-come, first-serve. No electric hookup or dump station. A few water spigots. Vault toilets. They warn there’s a 27-foot length limit (bumper to bumper), but a few sites seem to accommodate longer trailer/car combos. For reference, I’m about 40 feet total.
Did I mention they were free?
Thank you, Teddy Roosevelt. Good work.
