The San Pedro Campground at Lake Amistad is about eight miles from the SuperWalmart in Del Rio Texas but it is really an isolated feeling place. As we were heading back to the Castle the afternoon sun was bearing mightily on the white sides of the Castle showing its location out in the desert. We thought it might interest someone to see the desert vastness and isolation even just outside town.
This first picture was taken with the camera lens at a normal setting. That would be about what your naked eye would see. The camera location was near spur 454 and highway 90 looking toward the San Pedro camping area.
Then the OFM did all the zoom the camera has and took the next picture. After cropping we ended up with this picture which is well more enlarging than simple regular binoculars would give you.
Yes it is remote but easily accessible by the gravel roads.
Later that evening the sunset was playing around in the sky and we were playing along. About a dozen sunset pictures were taken. These next two were taken about ten minutes apart from essentially the same spot. It was hard to believe they were the same sunset.
Yep the deserts of West Texas can be a great place for trying to have tooooo much fun.
