Balmorhea State Park, TX

A Coot
Saturday, November 9, 2013, Balmorhea State Park, Junction, TX - 262.2 miles, 3,754.9 For the Trip

Although this was one of the longest drives of the trip, it went quickly since all of it was on I 10. In this part of Texas, with no large cities, I 10 is almost pleasant to drive. Still boring, but the traffic is very light.

I included one photo of some doves from the bird blind at South Llano River State Park. The rest are at Balmorhea. I stayed here in 2012 in Site 20; this time I'm in 21. I almost decided to go for a swim in the pool - it is in the 80's this afternoon, but it is about as far away as you can get from my site and still be in the park, and I decided to relax and read instead. Besides, the water was pretty cold. I took some photos at the same locations as last time - the man made Cienega that replaced the natural one destroyed when they built the swimming pool in the 30's. More photos at today's LakeshoreImages page.

I stopped and talked with a couple in another small single axle trailer - they sold their home and are traveling around the country. We talked about all the places we've both been to.

Dinner was a steak, broccoli and a quick fix noodle, broccoli & cheese dish. I'm learning to mix fresh vegetables with the packaged side dishes while they cook to allow preparation on the one burner stove I use.

Until later -
