The second day here was interesting. A bit of a ride around the town showed San Angelo to be a nice place. Even the lower income houses were kept up nicely with clean yards. That speaks well for the folks of this town. On north a little was a decent looking golf course. My clubs were back at the Castle, but the wind was trying to uproot the grass anyway. Diesel has been $2.499 around the park, but out to the northwest it was $2.389 so the Truck got a belly full of it.
Back in the south unit of the state park, a ride up to the over look was taken. Yesterday it was full of an art class from one of the local schools. Today it was reserved for me only apparently. After over a half hour up there it was still only me. The Truck was enjoying the view and stayed in that one place the whole time.
The land has lots of small steep convolutions to it. It is definitely not flat, but not high mountains either. Maybe the correct description would be rugged. The bike trail mentioned yesterday was partially visible from the over look. It is nice to see it from the overlook. The hard bodies can have the “fun” of riding that devil. The road up to the overlook shows the larger dips and rises of the terrain.
On top of the summit was some pretty flowers. The purple spiked ones were all over the place.
Interspersed with them were some small yellow and some small blue flowers. It was hard getting pictures without the flowers being blurry with the strong winds up there.
From one spot on the camping loop where the Castle is residing, you can see another loop that is totally empty. Without the lake having useable water in it, this campground is nearly unused. That is a shame because there are lots of walking trails and biking trails that would be fun to travel.
Tomorrow is leaving day. It is a continual amazement that folks have trouble with my answer to the question “ Where are you going next?” or “ What is your itinerary?”. My answer is nearly always the same. I do not know. Where the sun shines will lead me there.
Most folks cannot understand that a destination is not required. Occasionally some one will get the big eyed stare as they realize that this lifestyle does not have those boundaries. Then the questions really come out. Once many folks realize this lifestyle really exists and functions well, they can get very excited about the possibility for themselves also.
That is when they start to understand the concept of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
