June camping trip Part 1–Sugarite Canyon

We took a trip to a camping area that used to be a ski area many years ago.  There was just not enough snow to keep it going so it was soon turned into a New Mexico state park.  The name of the area is Sugarite Canyon.  Last year it was pretty much devastated by a huge forest fire but seems to be surviving well.

Sugarite doesn't look as bad as I feared. Thank goodness that the Lake Alice area was spared. Thanks for sharing these.
