First one was at Mount Magazine State Park in Arkansas, and the other 2 were Garner State Park, West of San Antonio Texas. If you ever get the chance to go towards Arkansas around mid to late October I STRONGLY recommend Mount Magazine. Some of the most beautiful Fall Colors you will see.

a way in which to show one is grateful I think

I have befriended a few homeless ones
and others in these tight times
help (a little) where I can
just do not wish to get too puffed up
before the Big Guy upstairs
then I or we would receive no credit due

why have I been blessed so
so as to give
a gift given to me
job, retirement monies etc etc
giving to others is
a way in which to show one is grateful

giving all credit to where credit is due

I have not spent any time in Arkansas. My folks used to winter in Zapata and we tried to spend a week with them each year. I thought some of the scenery reminded me of the San Antonio area.
Living in the north, we're used to looking for fall colors in New England. My DW and I camped for 10 days in New Hampshire in October. We ended up being a little early. Much of the color change was occuring as we had to leave (leaf?)

sculpture garden grows in the desert
By J. Harry Jones
12:19 p.m., July 9, 2011

A 350-foot serpent straight out of a fantasy novel emerges from the desert along Borrego Springs Road.

Saturday morning, artist Ricardo Breceda, who has built 129 metal sculptures all over Borrego Springs, was putting the final touches on his biggest and quite possibly coolest creation yet.



does not show it in this picture
but
this cool THING
goes under the road
continues back behind us here
for a good distance


this artist has a lot of his work out there

we rented a place on private property
with all hook ups
super view
really nice for 100 dollars a month
I put an ad in the local newspaper
and found it

yes Borrego has many places to
dry camp for free
and many more for a simple fee
with all hook ups

a great get away to God's country place

don't abuse it but be sure to use it

the wife and I plan on
hitting the desert middle of the month
I now also have her convinced
the more we use it the more savings
I just made a couple of repairs
thinking I should make
a test run out next week by myself
my excuse
just bringing the cost of that trailer THING
down even more my dear sweet one and only
I think I got it going on here
we'll see if she goes for it ??

don't abuse it
but
be sure to use it

With three teenagers, the cost of hotels (2 rooms, at least) and eating out 3 meals for 5 people gets close to $450 a day. With the tt we are way under that and travel a lot more. Plus the memories we create are priceless.
