At the Saddleback RV Park in Balmora, TX, they have beautiful desert plants all around the park.
Some Beavertail Cactus,
Even wild cotton.
We pulled out and headed for San Antonio. It was going to be a long day's drive, over 350 miles. We decided to do a marathon day and after arriving at our destination, Lackland Air Force Base FamCamp, we'd stay put for four or five days.
While we drove, we enjoyed the scenery of West Texas. They were not kidding when they said everything in bigger in Texas. It is a huge state to drive through. So to make our trip more interesting, we kept our eyes peeled (or shredded, as little Owie says) for the Yellow Rose of Texas. While we were driving, that song came over our XM radio. Too funny.
We never did find a yellow rose anywhere, but we did find a strange tree that we saw all over the place. Searching all the pages in the Audubon guide book didn't give us any idea of what kind of tree is was. We're baffled.
We landed in the FamCamp and we're all hooked up for some rest and fun. Going to do the River Walk and the Alamo, for starters.
It's a tough life we're living, but we're certainly enjoying it. :c)
