The vibe at Monjeau Lookout
Drop some Monjeau Lookout knowledge on us.
This is a really cool place to camp. Literally and figuratively. There are a handful of camp sites at the peak, and there is a single pit toilet. No water, electric or any amenities. You can relieve yourself in the toilet, and that is ALL you are allowed to leave behind. Everything else must be taken with you..
This site is at the peak, and sits below Sierra Blanca and between Sierra Blanca and Capitan mountains; therefore it is WINDY. During the day, it is a nice breeze that keeps you cool. At night, it gets quite cold. Whatever the weather is in Ruidoso or Alto, plan a good 10 degrees cooler, especially at night.
The trail out here is steep and washboard -- have the right kind of car!
One addition to the description -- TENTS ONLY! Do not try to haul a camper up here, unless you have a 4x4 and offroad camper. You will get stuck. The roads are steep and gravel, with no guard rails. The parking lot is tight with little room to turn around.
