Sauntering, Our travels around the country
Maple Syrup Symposium (2007)
So how did I end up in Texas updated videos)
February 2, 2006
At Big Bend, we stayed at Chisos Mountain Logde in the park. We arrived late afternoon and did some hiking before the sun went down.
We got up early the next morning to take in some of the sights of the Park and headed to Santa Elena Canyon. The left side of the canyon is Mexico, The right side is the United States or if you are from Texas the right side is Texas. The water you see is the Rio Grande.
After Santa Elena Canyon we headed to the southeast part of the park to have a look at Boquillas Canyon. We did hike up into it but snapped a few picture looking into Mexico.
Not long after leaving
As we drove toward the Center we passed another cyclist. We parked and talked
to him. Luke is cycling the perimeter of the
Luke, ready to camp after a day of riding.
Tuffy, the little white dog that Heather is holding also attend the monthly meeting. He was taking a break from his regular duties, including keeping the town free of ring-tail bobcats. We heard that while on duty one day, Tuffy grabbed the tail of a bobcat that was living under the post office and a tug of war ensued. We don't know who won but we didn't see any bobcats.
Langtry has a population of about 20. Most everyone attended the meeting. They asked us all questions about our travels and shared some stories about growing up and living in Langtry. The food was plentiful and delicious and included two desserts! It was like being adopted for the night…and left us feeling very warm and welcome.
Back out in the community center yard we set up the laptop and watched some Family Guy for a bit before turning in.
The alarm clock's with no off button.
