We took a southerly route in hopes of warmer travels, but the eastern cold seemed to follow us south, except for one day in Alabama.
Finally, in West Texas, the sun broke through. We had a warm day at South Llano (pronounced “lano” rather than the Spanish “yano” by the locals) River State Park and enjoyed a walk along the river.
The park has a big roosting area for wild turkeys, but we never saw any. We did see several armadillos.
From here we headed to Big Bend National Park.
