Navajo Lake, NM and Ignacio, CO

Navajo Lake

After the HOG Rally in Albuquerque, I headed back up north on HWY 550 to Navajo Lake State Park. Several RV friends were already there and I was looking forward to visiting the area. The state park had several different campgrounds but the one where my friends were parked was up a very rough, bumpy, yucky road, plus the campsites where small and the turns were very tight. So, I splurged again and paid to have electricity and a nice, paved campsite.

I went on one nice, long Harley ride which took me to two different Harley shops in two different states - Four Corners Harley-Davidson shop in Farmington, NM and Durango Harley-Davidson in Durango, CO. I bought a quart of Harley Motor Oil in Farmington.

One day I went out on the lake in Trish's boat. I drove the boat for about four hours while Trish and John fished. They didn't catch anything, and I didn't run into anything = )

After 9 days at Navajo Lake I headed north a short ways to the little town of Ignacio, Colorado for the Igancio Bike Rally. The rally has been going on quite a few years, but this was my first time. I passed on parking in a dirty, dusty field and paid to stay at the Sky Ute Casino RV Park. It was very clean and very new. My friends stayed in the dirt lot and after a very big rain storm Saturday night, they were pretty much stuck there, in the mud. And another storm was expected Sunday evening.

Before the rains came, I went to the Rodeo. Bikers get a chance to see how skilled they are at riding a bull instead of their steel horse. I didn't have a very good vantage point, and the bulls moved pretty fast, so my pictures aren't very good, but I had a good time. Oh, and the "Cowboys" didn't stay on very long.

I have to laugh - you're really getting spoiled with these hookups. But I have to admit we look for the Corps of Engineers campgrounds partially for that reason.
