Clayton Lake State Park

Clayton Lake State Park is in the Northeastern corner of New Mexico, 15 miles North of the town of Clayton. It has the dinosaur tracks I posted about earlier.

Inside the Visitor Center there's a cutout in the wall and a glass cover  to enable a view of the insulation. This building uses 650 straw bales stacked seven rows high. The bales are fireproofed with boric acid and borax, which also keeps bugs and rodents away. The roofing material is 100 percent recycled rubber and plastic, formed into shingles resembling slate.
