The wheels were rolling before 0700 this morning. El Paso had the highway shut down in two spots that caused some delay in the traveling effort for today. 325 miles later the Teams are camped in Davis Mountains State Park in Fort Davis, Texas for the night. The Castle waited patiently while the Truck went for a ride on the skyline drive.
It is hot here at 5200 feet of elevation so we chose to stay just one night. The current plan is to go back to Rockport and wait for a grand kid to be born. Rockport doesn’t get as hot as the rest of Texas.Back in Rockhound State Park there was only one snake this trip and it was not a rattlesnake to my surprise. It was a small 12”+- orange snake that was fairly fast. In face all three shots with the camera came out very blurry. What is the name of the snake is my question.
A pretty white flower also caught my attention late last night. The bees were working it over pretty heavily so caution was needed while taking this next picture.
Lately the Truck has been getting better fuel mileage to my surprise. There had not been a chance to check it until today. For the 325 miles today the Truck while towing the Castle averaged over 15 mpg instead of the 12 mpg in the past. Why is not known but it is appreciated by my credit card bill.
Tomorrow will be another rolling day in the heat as the Teams head toward a new location for trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
