Luna Lake, AZ
Unexpected places are what make a road trip interesting. Luna Lake was just such a place. We had planned to stop at Cosmic Campground, a dark sky viewing spot near the border of AZ and NM. However, Joel decided to make a change in plans and we ended up at Luna Lake. It is gorgeous! The weather was perfect and we were lucky to snag a lakeview spot. There are no hookups at Luna Lake, so this was our first chance to try out our dry camping skills with our newly installed solar system. We enjoyed a huge evening fire (free firewood everywhere as they were cutting down all the dead trees to thin out the forest for fire season). We had this great forest/lake view out our bedroom window. The camp spots were spaced far apart so you felt like you had the place all to yourself. It got a bit chilly at night, after nearly freezing to death, Joel finally turned on the heater (he thought we would run the battery too low). But, guess what?!? We had a nearly full battery still the next morning…ugghh, me and the dogs are still shivering!
