Truth OR Consequences New Mexico

Tuesday March 7th

We have had two beautiful warm sunny days, with no wind, what a treat.  It is suppose to be windy again on Wednesday, maybe the weather man will be wrong, until then I will be outside enjoying. 

We are staying at Elephant Butte State Park on the Reservoir.   Only $14.00 a night for water and electric, not to bad.  Elephant Butte State Park



Our campsite over looking the beach.  Lots of birds in this area, Stormy spends most of her day in the window, wishing she was outside, and thinking yummy. 

In the morning I take a walk on the beach, it goes on for a couple of miles.  Easter morning they are having an Easter egg hunt on the beach.  I will have to get pictures of that.



A couple of Mike’s sunset pictures taken from our campsite. 

Truth Or Consequences is the town that was named after the radio and TV show hosted first by Ralph Edwards then by Bob Barker.  When the show was celebrating it’s 10th anniversary it asked towns in the US if they would change their name to TorC.  Well Hot Springs New Mexico volunteered and has had the name ever since.  Every year they hold a very large fiesta celebrating the name.  Here’s a link to information about the town Truth Or Consequences NM

Had to throw in a little history.
