Taking in Texas

Howdy y'all,
 We left Louisiana headed for Texas on Thursday. We made a quick one night stop just before Houston. We wanted to drive through Houston between 9 and 3:00 pm so we would miss rush hours.
 We were successful and the drive through was a breeze. We were lucky and got a low wind day for the drive to Canyon Lake, Texas where we will call home for the next nine days. Canyon Lake is about 20 miles north of San Antonio.

 This is called Hill Country area in Texas. Canyon Lake is a Corp of Engineering park. It has 4 different campgrounds and 3 day use areas. Cranes Mill Park campground has been upgraded from tenting to RV sites with water & electric and a dump station.
 The sites are nicely paved with a covered table, fire ring, and a nice standing grill. These are the type campgrounds Wendy and I really prefer.

 The first evening we had about six deer right behind our site. Saturday we went for a early walk and must have seen 15 deer running about.

 We will be exploring some of the small towns and other parks about.
 Today (Saturday) is Texas Independence Day. We are going to Luckanbach for a celebration. They will be having some live music and Texas Star Trail Ride in that will be hundreds of horses and wagons.
 The Texas Rangers (no not the baseball team) will be doing an official flag retiring ceremony. Should be a fun way to start to get our feel of Texas.


  1. I like! Will bookmark that campground. We really haven't done the hill country yet. Have fun celebrating TX independence!

  2. Isn't TX Hill Country beautiful? Will you be going to Fredericksburg? If you do be sure to allow two days to see The National Museum of the Pacific War. Why, you ask, is there such a museum in the middle of Texas? Because Admiral Nimitz was from Fredericksburg, that's why. The museum is fantastic and really does take two days to see it all.

    If you come into San Antonio, look us up at Travelers World RV Resort on Roosevelt Ave., Site D.
