We have had a great two months at Kickapoo Cavern, but we are ready to move on. Headed North again to see the “Momma” and hoping to summer in North Dakota this year.
This year we where lucky enough to be in the right places to view the “Total Eclipse of the Sun” and my second “Total Eclipse of the Moon”!
We also had a brush fire in the park this month. Was interesting to watch young men with Viet Nam Era military equipment fighting the fire. Mostly hard work with hand tools.
This month the sun came back again and we are having the weather the way we like it, warm in the day time and cool at night. Kickapoo has dark skies, peace and quiet, lots of walking trails, beautiful views and a great way to re-connect with nature. There are two neat little towns with in 40 miles, good for day trips. Del Rio and Uvalde are 60 miles away. Devil’s Sinkhole is near the town of Rock Springs and is well worth seeing. Plus they have a restaurant called “The Jail House” that serves “Road Kill”, not sure what road it is killed on, but mighty tasty. Must be the way they cook it. And, the drive from the park to Rock Springs is amazing.This month we started taking long road trips and have found some interesting areas near by. One is Camp Wood and it looks to be very nice. It is on the East Nueces River at the end of the Nueces Canyon, part of the Three Twisted Sisters Trail. I understand The Big Oaks RV Park is the place to be.
One Saturday night the Park Manager and his Wife took us over the boarder to Ciudad Acuna for dinner. We where kids the last time we went over the border and it was a great time. Something we would not have done with out our chauffer and interrupter. Barber Shops and Dentist Offices on every corner.
Now that I am back on the grid again I will be posting more often. And I want to thank Alan and the Gang at KCSP for making our stay an experience we will always cherish.
