Thursday, January 6, 2011

Thursday we were lazy in the morning and sat outside enjoying the wonderful weather.  The sunsets have been spectacular and the temperatures have been in the high 60's and 70's.  We drove West through the town of Lajitas TX, and Big Bend State Park to Presidio, TX, across the border from Ojinaga, Mexico.  We were not impressed with Presidio, but the drive was beautiful.  We stopped in a cafe in Presidio for a late lunch and noticed that we were the only "gringos" in the place.  The food was fine and the prices were very good.  We drove back to the trailer and spent the rest of the afternoon doing laundry and housework.

Friday we hung at the trailer for the morning and then drove back into the Park where we took another loop which went to Catalon and Santa Elena Canyon.  Again the views were breathtaking.  We completed the loop on a sand/gravel/rocky gnarly road for about 13 miles back to the pavement.  We drove on to Lajitas for dinner at the Lajitas Resort.  This was an unexpected upscale establishment in the middle of this desolate area.  The dinner was excellent, the restaurant was great and we really enjoyed the evening. 

Tomorrow we are leaving and heading for Del Rio Texas, and on toward South Padre Island.
