Got up and made some breakfast on the camp stove. Then off the to the nice hot shower. The KOA also had a dishwashing station with instant hot water and everything needed. Awesome.
Then decided first thing wanted to see the petraglyphs. This was way out in the booneys past the airport. Benefit to this no one else around at all. I misread the website that said easy 5 to 10 minute walk. On second look that is to the base of the cliffs LOL. But I really wanted to see them so I climbed with my trusty walking stick. It was a very difficult climb - lots of loose rock. But we made it and the petraglyphs were amazing and work all the effort. A big challenge for me! http://www.blm.gov/nm/st/en/prog/recreation/taos/la_cieneguilla.html#_=_
Next we went down the Santa Fe Railyard - the depot was a disappointment much smaller than imagined. I wanted to check out the Tuesday Farmers Market but got there a tad late. The Railyard for the most part is just higher end shopping and dining. Not what we wanted to spend time on so we were gone in abound 30 minutes.
Since I had pretty much worn myself out & it was pretty hot. Plus another challenge for Wednesday. David decided we would head to the casinos for the afternoon. Looked for a rest area for our lunch. We found nothing so we tailgated at the Cities of Gold Casino. This is a very locals place and is linked in with Buffalo Thunder. They had a ton of older reel games. We played for maybe an hour or so - I earned $10 more in free play but no wins. http://www.citiesofgold.com/
Headed down the road to Camel Rock Casino. Great Staff! Right from the parking lot. It was a bit of a walk but a very nice man in a golf cart picked us up and straight to the front door. He had been to Fort Worth with his dance group. Signed up for their players card - another free play game thing. I think $10 each. Lady at desk also let us know their diner had a $5 dinner special. We played around quite a bit on just a little $$$. No big wins but big fun. They had table games
Guess where this is? Right across the highway from Camel Rock Casino
and we thought before dinner we would play as the dealers were just standing around. Oh my goodness! I have never gotten sticker shock at a casino. One table was $10 a hand and the other $25 - wow! Usually small NA casinos are very cheap with table games. We passed! Decided to partake in the $5 chicken fried steak dinner .... I will just say it was a $5 dinner. Played another $20 and off we went! http://www.camelrockcasino.com/
Early night at camp. David built a fire and we played on our tablets while eating popcorn - how romantic!
