Largo canyon was interesting, far beyond what you would think for the middle of Oil Country NM. Eventually we hit US 64 outside of Blanco, NM and after a quick jog west we turned off onto NM 575 which is on an Old Spanish Trail (so says my atlas anyway). 575 turned out to be partially "paved". In reality it was bombed out and was worse to ride in sections than Largo Canyon Rd. Big holes and moderate amounts of metal trash that made you worry about your tires.
We made a quick stop in Aztec and then ran up to Mesa Verde by way of Hesperus and Mancos.
First order of business, since it was late afternoon was to get camp setup.
We had to chase some wild life out of our camp site.
The next morning it would be time to see the sights.
