I found this spot here on The Dyrt as I was just passing through Las Cruces.
It was only about 10 minutes out of town and was easy to find. There were several larger RVs there when I first pulled in, so I was slightly concerned about finding space.
But the road that continues from the first turnaround is only accessible to 4x4 vehicles, so there were fewer folks on the other side of the canyon.
I picked one of the first two spots on the left, but the road kept going and there were several other vehicles camped further up the road.
Enjoyed an epic sunset and great stargazing!
