Hidden Valley RV Park is an older 100 site park on a wooded hillside off NM 333 just east of Tijeras, New Mexico with basic gravel sites and full hookups. It's nothing fancy but is quiet (except for I-40 traffic climbing out of ABQ) and clean and handy to Albuquerque. The sites are a little small and close together by today's standards but are quite serviceable.

Nights I've camped here

Waiting

I remember walking in art galleries, through the nineteenth century: the obsession they had then with harems. Dozens of paintings of harems, fat women lolling on divans,turbans on their heads, or velvet caps, being fanned with peacock tails, a eunich in the background standing guard. Studies of sedentary flesh, painted by men who'd never been there. These pictures were supposed to be erotic, and I thought they were, at the time; but I see now what they were really about. They were paintings about suspended animation; about waiting, about objects not in use. They were paintings about boredom.

The Handmaid's Tale, Margaret Atwood
