So where was I….. Oh, right….leaving Waco.
We had a full day’s drive ahead of us – just a little over 400 miles. And because you know how much I like those windshield shots…..
The road started out pretty flat
and slowly developed into some nice rolling hills-
Oh, look – blackbuck antelope! Who knew?
Texas really does straight roads well, don’t you think?
Look – a curve!
We drove for miles and miles with only oil wells and an occasional trailer/office for interest. Texas does have good roads though, and since we were enjoying non-interstate driving it was a very enjoyable drive.
Hey – catch those mountains ahead of us…..
It’s nice when the road just makes a little cut right through that little “mountain”
But sometimes what’s on the OTHER side of those little mountains is just a little surprising!
(and believe me, I wasn’t actually saying wheeeeeeeeee. I was gripping my seat and praying!!!!!)
There was a nice pull-off (so I could start breathing again) and a chance to really enjoy the view-
More view –
We found that Texas knows how to take advantage of those nice flat mesas…..
