Trip update: sunshine breaks through in Texas


A cairn of stones alongside the South Llano River

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.

Prickly pear

Mistletoe in what we think were pecan trees

One of several armadillos we saw. He was shy, so I couldn’t get his head.

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.
