On Wednesday, 18th, we were up before the sun rose and on the road east as the sun was rising.
It turned out to be a beautiful day for traveling. We took US-90 most of the way. It is this nice two lane road with little towns sprinkled here and there.
Not sure if this was smoke, dust, or fog:
We went thru very flat areas:
And some not so flat:
US-90 is very close to the Mexican border in some areas. On the above two pictures, you can see the dirt road alongside the paved road. In a couple areas, we saw the Border Patrol dragging tires like those below, along that dirt road. They were checking for footprints and then smoothing it again. Very interesting.
We went across the Pecos River, which was very green:
Thru parts of the Amistad National Recreation Area, where the water was very blue:
More greenery than before:
We arrived at the Alamo Escape Co-op Park in Hondo, set up, and spent the next few days with our dear friends Carolyn and Pete. It was so good to see them and get caught up with each other. Lots of food, beverages, laughter, crying, hugging, and talking. How wonderful!
Please keep Carolyn in your prayers. She is going for a back operation on Thursday and hopefully all will be well.
Tomorrow we continue our journey east so stay tuned and enjoy today.
