Wondering about wild grapes

Billy Bob wants pictures, so. . .

Billy Bob asked for pictures and since I will not have internet for awhile, I will post some now.  We are in Alpine, TX at the Lost Alaskan RV Park.  This first one shows the back of my RV and the mountains on the horizon:  

The next picture is a better view of the mountains:

The one dog is taking it easy in the next picture.  Did you notice that they have their toys all over the place?  The guitar is my toy:

This next picture is of a century plant, I believe, just on the road side of the dog walk area.  If it is, I didn't know that they got that high.  Or is it something else:

This next one is my wife and the male pup in front of a younger century plant, or whatever it is:

The nice couple that are work campers here (she runs the office and he does odd jobs and directs the RVs to their site) have an unusual RV themselves.  They live in it and I bet it has a lot of room.  Have any of you ever seen anything like it?
I can't seem to get blogger to let me start typing this last paragraph from the left, but only from the center.  Don't know what is wrong.  Remember, I will not be able to post for a few days.  Now, you all have a great day, you hear?


  1. Nice looking Jeep they have. It's just like mine. :)

  2. Yes, and that is quite an RV, too.

  3. I have never seen an RV like that. An 18 wheeler turned RV? Would love to see the inside of it!

  4. The first century plant picture shows a plant that has bloomed and is now dead. The second century plant is not young since it is now just starting to bloom so it is 10 to 30 years old.

    When it flowers, the spike with a cyme of big yellow flowers may reach up to 8 m (26 ft) in height. Its common name, century plant, likely derives from its semelparous nature of flowering only once at the end of its long life. The plant dies after flowering, but produces suckers or adventitious shoots from the base, which continue its growth.

  5. MsB, I would have liked to see the inside, also, but I never ask to see the inside of any one's RV unless the subject is brought up by them. Sometimes I hint.

    Ed, Thank you for the information.
