My mom's birthday was yesterday, Happy Birthday Kathy Ott! Yesterday was a nice relaxing day - we left our campsite at Bottomless Lake State Park and drove about an hour to our next campsite at Brantley State Park. New Mexico has nice state park campgrounds, our only complaint was that they didn't have any fire pits, otherwise two great night stays for under $20 and both with water and electric hookup, and even wifi!

I paid $55 to stay here for ...
