On the Road Again

23 03 2011

We’re about an hour north of Trinidad, our first stop on the Texas Road Trip 2011.  While our route will be very similar to last year, Trinidad Lake State Park will probably be the only place we have stayed before. Unlike the 2010 trip, we’re going to try to avoid the commercial, urban RV parks and instead explore several state parks  along our route.  We’ll visit Elephant Butte State Park in New Mexico.  In Texas we’re planning to see 4 state parks, Hueco Tanks, Davis Mountains, South Llano River and Palo Duro Canyon.  We will make a few stops at commercial RV parks in Santa Fe and outside of San Antonio.  In another change from last year, instead of traveling every day, we’re planning 2 nights in Davis Mountains, near the Big Bend area.  And, we are purposely planning to make a slight detour into Kansas so that we can affix our ‘been-there’ sticker to our US travels map.  More once we get parked in Trinidad…

Our planned stops on this route map are:

A) Denver, CO
B) Trinidad Lake State Park near Trinidad, CO
C) Santa Fe, NM
D) Elephant Butte State Park near Truth or Consequences, NM
E) Hueco Tanks State Park & Historic Site near El Paso, TX
F) Davis Mountains near Ft. Davis, TX
G) South Llano River State Park near Junction, TX
H) Our destination, Harlingen, TX in the lower Rio Grande River valley
I) Kerrville, TX
J) Palo Duro Canyon near Amarillo, TX
K) Lakin, KS

I’m not sure that pitstop in Kansas is truly qualification for a sticker. 🙂

Hey, it will be overnight – isn’t that what counts?

Hopefully it’s OK in NM and TX…just beer in Mexico!
