    Lodny dennik spojenych karavanistov 10

    June 23, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Na ceste do El Pasa sme sa zastavili v mestecku Junction s westernovou historiou. Dnes je to uz iba obycajne zapadnute male mestecko, kde vacsinu zarobkovej cinnosti obyvatelov predstavuje predaj suvenirov, loveckych potrieb a starych veci vo vypredajovych starozitnictvach. Stravili sme tu asi 3 hodinky, preliezli obchodiky, osviezili sme sa v rieke pri ktorej sme sa aj najedli. Viacej zastavok okrem tankovania sme nemali a tak sme pokracovali na El Paso. Prespali sme asi 2 hodiny jazdy od El Pasa v mestecku Van Horn. Zastali sme pri zeleznicnej trati blizko priecestia, takze kazdu dobru polhodinu sme dost jasne poculi prechadzat okolo asi 100-voznove vlaky :)Read more

    Junction, TX - S Llano River State Park

    April 1, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Discovered another greatTexas State Park, South Llano River State Park. It is covered in beautiful wildflowers. What a sight!

    The Park also has a very noteworthy distinction. It is designated an International Dark Sky Park. A Dark Sky Park provides stargazers a unique opportunity to view the heavens without the light pollution and sky glow associated with developed areas. Unfortunately for us, clouds also are a factor in viewing the stars. Three nights here and 3 cloudy nights. No joy! More opportunities await us.

    The Park is home to the Rio Grande Turkey and 250 other species of birds. The turkeys form a large roost in the Park which is just ending, so turkey sighting was rare. As compensation we were able to see the exotic Blackbuck Antelope. This species is native to India and was imported to Texas in 1932 by ranchers. They now number in the thousands. And we came upon a Great Blue Heron searching for his/her dinner in the South Llano River. Wildlife is spotted when you least expect it.

    As for the town of Junction, TX, there's not much noteworthy. It is known as the "Land of Living Waters". Why? Answer is the South Llano River and the North Llano River meet here to form the Llano River. All this water makes for many recreational activities.

    south llano river state park l

    May 3, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Last stop for this trip. Got out the bike and went for a ride on their trails, saw deer, and a variety of birds. I need to plan a week here in September to paddle the various river trails. Really nice park. Very quiet because only old people here right now. In fact I feel rather young right now, everyone else is much older but all very nice.
    This will be my last entry until my next trip, June 7 - 17 when the Girl scout troop loads up the trailer and we head to Colorado. I hope to post a few photos then also.

    As a parting note, Kim had her doctors check up and all is well. Plus she can drive now so she does not feel so housebound. Elliott is waking up once at night and so alert and awake in the afternoons for Mom and Dad. I wonder what he will be like in 10 years. I really will need a sherpa by then.
