After a couple of diversions in our travel itinerary we have finally arrived in the great state of Texas. I was expecting more warmth….the nights so far have been in the teens/20’s…in the rig it is cold even with a propane heater.  We’ve had icicles on the water sprout and ice on our windows…but hey, we are camping in Texas in January

Juarez, MX from I-10 @ El Paso

We are staying near Balmorhea until the increment weather moves through…snow is forecast for -tomorrow. We left Oregon for snow in SW Texas….? Give me a moment….OK, I’m on board again.

Balmorhea…quaint small town, population 469…we have determined that it flourishes in summer because most of the businesses were closed, and not just for the holidays.
We then drove to Pecos, about 38 miles for propane and some groceries. Either of which we could find closer to the park. We were surprised to find the once thriving town, now very depressed and shabby – like so many of America’s small towns the main drag contains closed storefronts
