July 14, 2012
The Two RV Gypsies photographed murals in Tucumcari, New Mexico. There were 25+ murals (some were doubles) but some were located inside businesses that were closed for the day, and some had cars parked in front of them, and a few just couldn't be found by The Two RV Gypsies on this date.

The Two RV Gypsies took a ride to Conchas Lake State Park:

Conchas Lake is a 25-mile long reservoir in northeastern New Mexico, behind Conchas Dam on the Canadian River. The lake has an elevation of 4,200 feet and a surface area of 9,600 acres.

Conchas Dam was completed in 1939 by the United States Army Corps of Engineers.

Conchas Lake
Conchas Lake is beautiful, but the Two RV Gypsies did not realize that although it is a state park, it is only for boaters and campers. There was limited area to drive or walk around to take photographs. The tourist brochures advertise coves, canyons, sandy beaches, petroglyphs, and ancient rock formations. But the Two RV Gypsies did not see any of those things.
