Feb 7, 2009 - Rough Canyon

Drove up the road to Rough Canyon and took some pictures. A LOT of goats along the way. Then drove into Del Rio to dump and get water, and they had filled in the dump station and took out the water spigot !!! Needless to say, we’ll be doing a lot less shopping in town. There’s a Laundromat and the park dump/water station up the road 8 miles so we’ll go there from now on. Had a leak in our shower, which caused a wet spot to appear in the middle of the living room. Poor Weebles almost got blamed for having an accident !! We got a new faucet...

There are no hookups, so we are boondocking tonight.

Apr 25, 2008 - Seminole Canyon State Park

We drove out of Alpine and the cool weather to Seminole Canyon State Park that is about 45 miles west of Del Rio and near the Pecos and Rio Grande Rivers on Lake Amistad. This was our first camping trip to a Texas State Park and we wanted to see how well we would fit. Well--we fit very nicely into a nice back-in spot with good water and electricity. The 30 amp power could not keep up with the 97 degree heat since there is no shade but after the sun set, we managed to cool off the RV. We came to this park to take the White Shaman guided hike...
