We departed Lakehills and headed for the small town of Bracketville where we spent two nights. The weather was cold so after meeting with the sister of a close friend and getting a tour of the park (Ft. Clark Springs), which is really very interesting, we spent most of the time doing laundry and a little cleaning. We did get out to see some of the countryside but not much to see so won't even try and post any pictures of this area.
We moved to Marfa for one of our one-night stands. We did get to look around the town and they had some very nice old buildings in the downtown area, but next to the RV park used to be the Stardust Motel. This is all that remains of the facility.
We are not sure if they call this "grass land" or just "flat land". We wanted to get in and out of town ASAP because they were predicting lots of snow. Talking to a gentleman in the park he said this was usually the coldest area of Texas.
We said goodnight to the cold and headed back inside to enjoy a hot drink and a board game that Jackie finally won.
Up early the next morning with plans to do about 300 miles and get out of Texas and into New Mexico. We traveled northwest on US 90 where the road was great with very little traffic. Very easy drive sitting back listening to a book on tape.
Five miles to go to our destination up in the hills south east of Deming New Mexico.
This is what we woke up to in the morning with the mountain behind us.
We did get the bird feeder out and hung it so it was only about 5' from our side window and enjoyed watching all the activities. It took about 24 hours for the feeder to be emptied.
We must say this area is really flat, looking out toward Deming there are scattered homes in the desert but few and far between until you get closer to town.
Just an interesting shot looking at the hills behind us.
Another evening and another sunset. Caught this one just as the sun dropped behind the small hill in the distance. See if you can find the Border Patrol blimp that sits in the sky day and night.
