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.
