What we saw while driving northwest along US-90 towards Seminole Canyon State Historical Park was flat wilderness – all the way to the horizon in every direction. I’ve heard a lot about boring drives through Texas, and I believe this is one of those parts of the state that people refer to.
We arrived at Lake Casa Blanca International State Park Laredo, Texas in anticipation of great outdoor fun. But as has often been the case for us recently, expectations didn’t mesh with reality. Gloomy, dreary and wet days were the norm during our one-week stay, as back-to-back winter storms passed through. It was more than enough to add to my already funky mood.
After staying a month in Mission, Texas we were itching to get moving again – that’s really longer than we like to sit in one spot, even if the birding was world-class. Virtually so far our entire winter in Texas has been cold and dreary, with incessant winds that just would not stop.
It’s hard to believe we’ve been on the road for three years now. It seems like just yesterday that we embarked on this journey to explore our beautiful country on March 1, 2012. How time flies! And here we are three years later, continuing to make wonderful memories along the way.
