We moved to Bluewater State Park a little west of Grants, NM for the holiday weekend arriving on Thursday. When we arrived no one was on the gate so we parked where the sign said "Primitive Camping".
We checked out the area close to the water but decided it looked too soft if rain should occur and every afternoon this time of the year there are "monsoons". Anything from about a dozen sprinkles to a gully washer. When we did finally see a ranger he said we were wise to park up here as the weekenders would be crowded around the lake shore.
Then on Sunday we got hit with a gully washer.
