Leaving Cowtown RV Park this morning.
Stopping at the office to check out and tell good things about their park, we were treated very good here.
In search for fuel and a morning to go, we found both.
Back on the I-20 eastbound.
After about 21/2 hours of driving it was time to take a break, this rest area isa wifi hot spot.
We had seen several prisons located right next to the interstate.
About this time we started talking about bar-be-que, why not we're in Texas.
A billboard was sighted on the interstate for this place, my mouth was already watering for bar-be-que. Unfortunely this place was closed today.
Well, the good thing there is another bar-be-que just around the corner.
With our rig securely parked we made tracks to the front door.
The smell of good bar-be-que was definitely here at this all you can eat delight.
Plates of thanks from many visitors of this eatery.
They kept the food line well stocked for the hungry people coming in. Not long after we have settled in the chuch crowd came in and the line was out the door.
With our bellies full with delightful grub it was on the road again.
With all this open space, why not put up a few thousand wind generators.
What's this, two crane battling it out.
It looks like they have bared their arms as well.
Looks as if tere is a stalemate going on.
What's with this,building prisons along the interstate?
I thought, at least we had left the rain behind and its dead ahead.
Windy conditions were stepping up, a lot.
Sunshine is almost gone, storm clouds were that thick.
Can't see the road anymore.
I'm driving slow now and the rain is coming down in by the wheel barrel load.
Texas Thunder Storm
Rain coming down so hard that it was difficult to see the road signs.
By the time we reached this place, the storm was behind us.
We have arrived at our turn off.
I don't think so,70 is fast enought pulling a trailer.
Nice display map of Texas on the freeway embankment.
Prices frozen in time, this station was closed forever.
A couple more hour and we'll be there.
Bragging rights of Pecos, sign is set along our way.
What you see is a straight as a arrow road all the way to New Mexico.
A few storage tanks and oil pumpers seen in the near distance.
Several abandon houses were along hightway 285
Historical marker pointing out Pope's Crossing, it appears that some popshots were dome to this marker.
Another storm is brewing up ahead.
Getting closer to our destination.
Welcome to New Mexico.
Changes in the road happens here, there are some small hills.
Rain pouring on a thirsty desert.
Catching the edge of the storm, getting a few raindrops.
Another structure ruin by griffi dogs.
Findly at our detination,Carlsbad RV Park.
We were given a site next to a camping cabin.
