Camping is one of America’s greatest pastimes. There’s nothing quite like laying out all your gear, packing up a huge backpack, slinging it over your shoulder, and heading out into the wilderness for a few days of peace and relaxation. In New Mexico, there is a lake hidden deep in the Pecos Wilderness Northeast of Santa Fe. This lake is known as Hidden Lake, and is the perfect spot for camping no matter the time of year.

Trips like this are the ones that create memories that last a lifetime. Next time you need an escape, lace up those hiking boots and set out for a night at Hidden Lake. (And be sure to let us know what your favorite part was!)
