Overnight in Van Horn, TX


With sunny skies, we set off eastward again. We traveled into New Mexico, through Las Cruces (the Crosses) and into Texas, flying low through El Paso (the Pass) on the interstate.

More lovely springtime flowers and cactus along the highway, and clouds beginning to form in the distance. We heard that we will be driving into rain as a storm is forming over Mexico and coming north.

This western portion of Texas is more hilly and mountainous which makes for nice scenery as we head east. Cheryl was involved in a paperback book but stopped periodically to enjoy the scenery and snap a few photos.

We stopped in Van Horn, Texas at a Passport America RV park listed in the book. It is not in good shape, the owners are trying to sell it but it had full hook ups and was half price. The scenery around it was lovely, desert for miles and surrounded by mountains. Downside = next to Interstate and Railroad Tracks.

We called ahead to Kerrville Elks to verify that they still have RV spaces, which they do, and I asked about the weather. Yes it is pourning and expected to be that way for several days. Oh, well, break out the foul weather gear.
