Why am I writing about this? Because I'm camped at Pancho Villa State Park on the site of the former Camp Furlong. I'm still trying to figure out whether it's a campground with a museum or a museum with a campground. And a cactus garden.
And I'm here because it's the southernmost New Mexico state park. My goal is to hit as many of the parks as I can, from bottom to top.
Otherwise, unless you're a student of the Mexican Revolution, a fan of Villa, or you need to make a run across the border for medications, there's not much reason to drive thirty miles south of Deming. But I wouldn't have known that if I hadn't gone. That's what exploring is about.
Still all too true
