Good Evening from South Texas

Choke Canyon State Park

We’re now finally closer to the Gulf of Mexico than the Rocky Mountains!  Today we drove through San Antonio, turned south and are about 200 miles from the lower Rio Grande Valley.  We’re camping overnight at the Choke Canyon State Park, just outside Three Rivers, TX.  The 40 electric/water hookup sites are situation alongside the 26,000 acre Choke Canyon Reservoir, part of the water supply system for Corpus Christi.  The sites are spread out across two large loop areas with natural trees and grass.  This is an older park and not maintained nearly as well as South Llano river.  But still, it’s quite comfortable and very nice to be camping near water again – quite a change from the arid desert around Elephant Butte.

The internet service is barely hanging in there – the Verizon Broadband comes and goes as does the T-Mobile cell phone coverage.  But for just a quick overnight, this will work fine.  However, the TV signals from San Antonio are strong, so we’ve been able to catch up on some of the news and weather.  This will be the last night in the camper for awhile – tomorrow we’ll arrive in Harlingen where we’ll spend about 10 days relaxing and enjoying the warm weather along the golf coast.  More later…

Ah, green grass and big trees. I think it looks like a wonderful place to park a lawn chair and read a book all afternoon!
