Dripping Springs, TexasApril 1, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 10 °C
Driving toward Dripping Springs we started seeing signs along the Old San Antonio Road and Texas State Road 21 telling us we were on the Original El Camino Real de los Tejas. Okay.
Turns out these roads, and there are many of them in this country and Cuba, were built by the Spanish kingdom. The one Denny and I were driving on was the Spanish mission trail which ran through Texas and into Louisiana. Apparently it played a major role in the settlement, development and history of Texas.
We started seeing our first beautiful Texas bluebonnets today along with the brightly colored orange Indian Paintbrushes. These were scattered alongside the highway as soon as we entered the Hill Country.
Tomorrow promises to be filled with fields of them. Fingers crossed.
Finished up the day with some real Texas BBQ at a place called Salt Lick - Joe and Marilyn's favorite spot.
Thanks for the recommendation!Read more
