Still in Texas!
This road trip is moving very slowly through Texas. But at least I'm learning some history!
Can you see me, standing upon this piece of historical wall? It was once part of the first transcontinental mail route! I'm talking, before the Civil War...the stage coach stopped here for water along the way from San Francisco to St. Louis! This is amazing to me!
But suddenly, Beth has me back in the flowers!
This is a very strange looking plant. I noticed a sign nearby that read,
Would you believe this flower is part of the rose family?
I'm sort of okay with posing in flowers like these. The hairy parts remind me of Dr. Suess characters.
I also had a pretty good view of the Guadalupe Mountains from my spot in the flowers!!
But why did Beth stop with the flowers? She could have taken me to the top of the mountains.
I could have claimed I had been to the highest point in Texas!
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
