Elephant Butte State Park

Until now, I've never spent any time in the New Mexico state parks, but I plan to fix that this spring. My first stop was Elephant Butte SP, near Truth or Consequences, NM.

I think that's the Elephant, but I don't get it...

There was lots of cute wildlife in the area -

And an adorable bird. Anyone know what this is?

T or C has some really nice hot springs. We decided on Riverbend Hot Springs.

It's right along the Rio Grande River.

I loved the landscaping between the pools and the river.

We also had a great lunch in town -

And went to Sparky's in Hatch, a famous place for another delicious lunch.

So far, I'm really liking New Mexico!
