The trip back home went a lot smoother than the trip out. We had no breakdowns coming home and there was a lot to see. The road north out of Ft. Davis was a beautiful drive and I highly recommend it if you are anywhere close. These first few pictures were taken on that drive. I also posted some on an older blog, remember the cowboy pictures?
Enlarge the one above and the one below by clicking on them. Take notice of the rock formations, especially the one above.
We then got on I-10 and headed east. After awhile the pups needed walking and so did I, so we pulled off at a rest stop. Here we are parked with a pyramid shaped mountain in the background.
The rest stop had one Ocotillo plant and it only had two blossoms on it. But, I just had to get a picture of it. I just love seeing this plant in bloom. The first time we were in Terlingua, they were all in full bloom.
The above picture needed enlarging. Notice this is an example of the beauty and the beast. The flowers are beautiful but the sharp spines can give you a nasty puncture.
This is the other blossom on this lone plant.
And off down the road again heading east. See that cup sitting on the dash? That empty cup road a few hundred miles just sitting there. Gives you an idea of how nice a ride the air-ride system on this coach works. But when it lets you down like it did on the way out, it costs time and money.
Thanks for riding along on the way home. Remember when we left for the trip I showed a picture of our front lot and how nice the grass was cut. Well guess what, it looks like a wild field now and needs some attention soon. The cold front came though last night dropping the temps way down into the mid 40's . I think that broke some kind of record around here. Now, have a great day, stay warm, and most of all, stay happy, you hear?
