New Mexico Rest Area

About mile marker 53 eastbound on Interstate 10 in New Mexico is this little gem of a rest area.




















The sign says up to 24 hours stay. The smaller cropped off sign says, "Beware of Rattlesnakes".





















There are two roads that lead to the camp spots and each have a large "turn-a-round" at the end. As you can see, we picked a spot over 100 yards from the restrooms. The interstate is about the same distance.





















We parked so our slides would extend away from the road.






















Each spot has a "lighted" three sided building covering the picnic table. We thought it couldn't get any better,






















until we were treated with this magnificent sunset.


All for free........thanks to Johnny and Jenn of http://freecampsites.net/usa/ .
