I like the scenery and facilities at Heron Lake State Park, but not so much the weather. The nights are going to get seriously cold. Depending on the source, the forecast is for overnight temperatures in the high twenties, or just enough above freezing to have rain instead of snow. I don't need this. I'm heading to lower elevations and latitudes.
And I would reply, "No, I'm circumventing Albuquerque because of the balloon fiesta. Too many people. Too much traffic. Besides, I've done the balloon thing before."
