Head for the hills . . .

Just about all set for departure to cooler weather. Notice the brown grass in the yard. Severe drought here in south central Texas. I'm feeling like I forgot something . . . what could it be?

Oh yeah! Oscar has been eagerly awaiting the "mount 'em up" signal!

The Wonder Egg followed closely behind as we headed for the hills of west Texas.

You know you're away from it all when you pull over at a rest stop, there is one station on the radio dial and the only topic is a heated discussion on the local cattle and sheep prices. :)
Davis Mountain State Park is lovely, surrounded by green hills, watered by the summer thunderstorms. Water . . . what a nice change.

Janyce and Frank Keller, Oscar's new best friends, have been camping actively for over 40 years. Frank retired 20 years ago from a professorship at San Antonio's St Mary's University and they have been enjoying the outdoors with gusto ever since!

Tomorrow, we point north in search of cooler / higher territory.

It's late at night here and I was wondering if I should check up on Mr.Marks and Oscar. I'm jealous of the fact that you're having a great time in rainy, gren, and cooler climates (i'm also very happy). :) Happy Camping!!
