Just love the old windmills

Leaving hill country

Lots of grains grow in central Texas

We were amazed at the number of wind machines

Water & wind mills

Ranchers use their land to grow crops, pump oil & generate electricity...

Moving into wind & dust

The landscape is really changing

Look at the number of oil well jacks!

A nice ranch looms out of the dust


Our first day of travel was a mixed bag of weather. We started out in lovely sunshine but about halfway we hit gusty winds & blowing dust. We enjoyed the views - probably would have enjoyed better views without the dust this afternoon. We're driving thru areas we've not seen before so it was all very interesting. We just couldn't believe all the wind machines & oil well jacks we saw on the drive today.

We're safely in the Twin Pine RV Park in Slaton for the night. Hopefully the winds will decrease overnight & not be so bad tomorrow.

Continuing northwest... more later...
