Hovenweep National Monument

Oh what a great spot to see desert wildflowers jumping up in the rain. A very nice campground. With the Old Age Pass I paid $5/ night. 10 nights and I had already shot the camping budget. Darn.hove1

A nice shady shelter, flush toilets and drinking water. Lots of Puebloan ruins, lots of wildflowers, lots of hikes.

The above path led to a great view of the ruins. The flower below is a whorled milkweed. Hovenweep Whorled Milkweed

The Hovenweep National Monument is a gem and worth a visit. May your camping budget be larger than mine!
