Today we had to take care of those things that happen on the road. After I got the new tire for the trailer, we went food shopping, got some propane, and stopped by the hardware store for a few things. All together, we had a very successful morning since you can drive from one end of Alpine to the other is less than 5 minutes.
So after lunch we went geocaching around town. We found the 4 caches that we had selected. On the last cache, there was another cacher along with a Texas State Trooper (Highway Patrol). We had a really great visit with the troopers and then found the cache. The photo shows how pretty the day was for being out and about!
We have enjoyed our stay in Alpine since there is no railroad or highway noise and the sky is really dark at night--lots of stars and a full moon.
