Wow, nice pictures. I need to check out those lava tubes.

I was in Prescott this weekend too. Lynx lake. We love that area. Went on a 3 hour gravel bike ride way back thru Walker and passed Hassayampa lake. Lynx lake is even more fun now that they allow swimming.

Next up is Show Low in two weeks.

Didn't know they started to allow swimming. Very cool!

We booked a few nights at the KOA in Flag this summer. My family camped when I was young. My grandparents had a camper, the small kind you hitch up to your pickup. We went to the local campground that had a lake and was about 15 minutes from our house. Nothing primitive about it, but that was fine by us. We liked getting ice cream at the shop each night.

Once I moved to AZ, I did a lot of primitive camping with my friends up on the Rim and at Seven Springs and Apache Lake. Those were good times. Haven't been camping in probably 8 years.

This will be my daughter's first camping trip. She's been wanting to go since she's seen it on Paw Patrol and Bluey. I think she'll be bummed about no camp fire, but we'll bring the propane grill. Looking forward to seeing the stars.

Sounds awesome. If you want a campfire you could look into a portable propane fire pit. They're still allowed when traditional camp fires are banned. We got one from costco for $75. Not as good as the real thing, but better than nothing.

Got some new sweet LED lanterns since I broke my gas lantern offroading. Needed something more bump safe.

@MrYeahbut Might be camping NM with the misses next weekend. Been looking for an excuse to go there, buy fireworks and eat green chile. probably be hitting you up for some suggestions. Basically arrive friday night, sleep in the woods, do stuff all day saturday and head home sunday so not lots of time. I see the rio grande is there so assume I could hang at a river. I intend to see some local architecture, check out downtown areas or etc maybe but also see some awesome outdoor stuff. Albuquerque seems to be about5 hours away and sante fe an extra hour so I thought we may just be in Alb this time.

Suggestions for cool outdoors stuff, preferrably with water? spots on the rio verde? etc
Bomb, fresh, local true NM food with heat to it?

Ill probably come back and I wouldnt mind being there for the hatch festival sometime.

A few pics from our two nights at the KOA in Flag. Went to Bearizona and the Grand Canyon Deer Farm. Met a nice family from Phoenix and our kids played together. Didn't get much sleep, but had fun. Chloe had a blast and wants to camp again soon.
