Surprise! NM BLM Gorge campgrounds open.
Have been intending to post this sooner- we did a drive up the Rio Grande Gorge from Pilar NM and much to our surprise, we found the BLM campgrounds in the Gorge were all open, all the way to the Taos Junction bridge. Talked to a camp host who said they were reopened Septemer 1st. No public announcement that we saw, they just reopened them quietly. New Mexico State Parks are still closed to overnight camping. Restaurants, hotels are open with limits in NM but campgrounds still closed. Sure glad I bought an utterly useless NM resident annual pass before covid hit. Duhh. We also drove past the COE Abiquiu Lake campground and it was still closed as of a week or two ago.
