Why not the river sites ??
Anyone ever camped at Carlota Tinaja? I probably shouldn’t give away one of my secrete hiding places, but we used to camp there all the time when on the old ore road and exploring the east side of the park. You can drive right by it an never see it if your not looking. A beautiful little rock shelf overlooks Tornillo Creek and makes a fine place to set up camp (if you don’t mind hauling your stuff around the mall ledge along the Tinaja, which is almost always filled with water). You can’t beat the sunset there…from most anywhere in the park. My first experience with Ouzo was at Carlota. I found out why they call it Ouzo…your brains ooze out of your ears. I found myself plastered to a flat rock the next morning. Oh for the old days when my body would put up with such nonsense.
