To Pecos, Texas….wherever that is!!

The sun has rose, the sun has set and we ain’t outta Texas yet!  The drive from New Braunfels (Schlitterbahn) to Pecos (the western end of Texas) was surprisingly stunningly beautiful.  I think we were expecting lots of sage brush and cactus…but it was none of those things!  The landscape was amazing–R of R & R said it would this and he was right!

We stopped in this lil’ town called Sonora in search of a bit of food…and we found a patriotic town with a great deal of pride and respect for its troops.  On lamp posts throughout the town, there were banners hanging with the individual names of locals who are serving our country.  It was very touching.

God Bless Our Troops.

Pecos is a strange ‘lil town, down on its luck, but has a Wally World..go figure…  In our circle searching (literally) for a grocery store, we did come across this beautiful American flag painted on an abandoned building.

A building in Pecos.

Next stop, driving north through New Mexico to Albuquerque.
