Digging Around at Rockhound State Park
We climbed a hillside, found several small and lower quality rocks and pieces, and basically had the whole place to ourselves. If you're looking for a place to take the kids, I can't recommend Rockhound State Park. But if you are in the area, driving to the Spring Canyon State Park (better described as a sub area of Rockhound), a few miles south of the main park you will have the chance (slim, but still a chance) to see a wild ibex, which were released into the Florida Mountains, which are similar to their native range in Southwest Asia. We didn't see any.
Nearest City: Deming, New Mexico
Location: N° W°
Time Needed: A lot or not much. There's not much in between though.
Kid Friendly: Not like we had hoped.
