Our Texas Trip--So Far

We have been to Texas numerous times during our 30 years of traveling by RV.  This trip, so far, we have seen colder weather than usual but just as many interesting sights.  One day we saw a small herd of javelina, some ostriches, an ibex, goats and cattle.  There have also been a few longhorn cattle.

Traveling across West Texas, this sign and the town of Fort Stockton are part of the scenery.

At least 3 former US presidents hailed from Texas, Lyndon B. Johnson, George H.W. Bush and George Bush.  We spent a couple of days in Johnson City and saw the childhood home of LBJ.

There are lots of peaches grown in West Texas and many, many vineyards.  We saw these signs around Johnson City and Fredericksburg.

Of course, the main reason we stopped in Johnson City was to see the Christmas lights.  We happened on them two years ago when we were here and wanted to see them again.

While shopping in Fredericksburg yesterday, we visited the Vereins Kirche (community church) and Christmas pyramid in the center of town.

We also saw this neat old panel truck.

Many of the trees in Texas are large. Some, like the live oak, are evergreen.

Others are bare this time of year but still beautiful. I think this must be a mesquite tree.
