Writing Prompts

Trekking Towards Texas

Well, as Willie Nelson says, “On the road again!”

Leaving Arizona, I had to take a pic of Tucsons prettier bridge, I just wish the colors would have shown up better.

Must have been the time of day. The colors are much brighter in the afternoon.

About two hours or so into the trip, we stopped at Texas Canyon rest stop (still in Arizona) where the famous “hoodoos” are. You know, those stacks of rocks you sometimes see in different locations? Anyway, these are created by nature. Huge boulders balancing precariously where only God knew they wouldn’t fall.

I wanted to stay longer and look for better examples, but it was time to get the dogs in and get going. Why we are always in a rush, I don’t know. We had all day to get to Vado, New Mexico, but Dave made us leave by 8am and wouldn’t stop and see the roadside attractions like “The Thing” just to get here too early. This place is nothing special and we got here so early we would have had plenty of time to explore Las Cruces but he didn’t want to unhook the Jeep. I can understand that, it’s kind of a pain. So we’ve been watching tv all afternoon. I did find two more devils claws…they are literally everywhere around here!

My first card holder, finished!

While on the road, I finished my project. It’s a card holder which helps you hold a lot of cards at one time. That will come in handy while playing Phase 10!

Headed into Las Cruces, New Mexico

The mountain range was pretty with the sun highlights through the clouds. But where we are in Vado, there’s nothin to see. It’s just off the highway, lots of sand and scrub and barely qualifies as an RV Park but hey, it has hookups. We still have power and water. We are considering boondocking tomorrow night, so we will NOT have hookups. I’m not sure how far we are going, somewhere in west Texas.

I am excited to get home, but it will be a hectic month. Doctors appointments, visits with family and friends, and birthday parties to go to…the month will fly by! The problem is, we will be about 40 minutes from “home” so we will probably spend the first night next to my brother’s house before driving out to Alvarado on Sunday. I’m sure we will fit it all in, but right now it seems like a lot. Good thing we’re use to being on the road again!
