Don't you just love seeing this sign?  To me, it means, I am finally in the place I want to be.  For us this summer, it is 90 days, or 2179 hours, or 130749 minutes, or, if you wish 7844969 seconds until I get there!

Just Go...

Just go right now!  Why wait.  Just do it.  Heck, this is Spring Break, Easter is coming up, etc.  Just load up and go - heck, you don't have to go all the way to BBNP to get the "feeling"  just go West of San Antonio somewhere.

Maybe we need to stash a bottle or jar somewhere out there and sign in and sign out as we do our travels.

Good point, Shanea!  Once we get on Hwy 90 and are about 40 miles west of San Antonio, it feels like Big Bend is just around the corner! :D

See post a few min. ago on Balmorhea.  There are so many great TPWD parks around that you don't necessarily have to "go all the way" - or "hit a home run" to enjoy the "feeling" of West Texas.  Sometimes 3rd base is enough at Balmorhea, Seminole Canyon, Lake Amstead, South Llano River, etc.

Just seeing some prickly pear makes me happy.  I just love that plant.
