A Wet Night in Van Horn, Texas

DAY'S INN MOTEL--Well, we're dry and safe in Texas. We had a great time last night camping at Brantley Lake, and then we spent most of the day hiking at Sitting Bull Falls. But the weather turned bad as we looked for a new camp site in the Guadalupe Mountains National Park.

So we opted to continue on another 50 miles to Van Horn, Texas. We got a motel room and then the sky opened up. We ate supper at a nearby restaurant and listened to stories from drivers who had been east, west, and south of here...hail, zero visibility on the freeway, flooding in Pecos, 9 inches of iceballs on the roads.

We are glad to be here. Tomorrow we continue on to Big Bend National Park. We hope for good weather.

Yes, good weather is very important for travelling, especially when you drive in van. You should always check forecast. It can be dengerous if you are alone and no people around.
