EARLY MORN AT SANTA ROSA LAKE STATE PARK
From the warm comfort of my cushy recliner I watched a fiery sunrise through our side window. A nice way to start any day. Under cloudy skies we took ourselves for a nice walk overlooking Santa Rosa Lake.
Checking weather ahead we decided to edge ourselves a little further east today staying in warm weather. No, we are not heading north yet. I clearly laid out our traveling strategy a week ago. Yes we know about the cold and yes we know about the snow and actually we have come home to snow in most of our traveling years. Nothing new. Remember dat we are long term crazy Canadians from da Nort eh and between the two us we have about 140 snowy cold winters under our belts:))
WIDE BOAT RAMP ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE LAKE AT JUNIPER CAMPGROUND
LOTS OF ROOM FOR IMAGINATION IN THIS PHOTO
LEAVING THE STATE PARK WE CROSS BACK OVER LAKE SANTA ROSA’S RESERVOIR DAM
Again with strong tail winds behind us and except for some rolling uphill grades the Big E’s engine literally idled itself all the way across the plains of New Mexico and Texas. Light traffic again and once more we didn’t travel far keeping our mileage under 200 miles. Quite a traveling change for the Bayfield Bunch. Warm at 75F today with gusting winds.
ROLLING THROUGH SANTA ROSA NEW MEXICO…..WE ONCE OVERNIGHTED IN AN RV PARK HERE
IF WE STOPPED AT TUCUMCARI’S McDONALDS OVER THERE ONCE WE STOPPED THERE HALF A DOZEN TIMES OVER THE YEARS
THANKS FOR ALL THE GREAT MEMORIES NEW MEXICO…LOVE YA:))
WELL TEXAS HERE COMES THE BAYFIELD BUNCH AGAIN
We wrapped up our day in the parking lot of Amarillo’s Travel And Information Center alongside I-40 in Amarillo’s east end. An Okay spot with a good Verizon signal. Forgot to mention we had a surprisingly good Verizon connection in the Santa Rosa Lake State Park Wednesday as well.
A FEW CONSTRUCTION ZONES IN AMARILLO’S EAST END BUT NOTHING SERIOUS
AMARILLO TEXAS…..TRAVEL INFORMATION CENTER
Friday we will plod a little further ‘EAST’ but not too far. Checking our weather sites it looks like we’ll have us a nice helpful tail wind again.
