South Llano River State Park, TX

After a 4 hour long, wind-fighting drive across I-10, we’re parked at South Llano River State Park, just on the western edge of the Texas Hill Country. This is one of our favorite Texas State Parks. The campgrounds are spacious and set among beautiful old oaks with grassy meadows and woods stretching out beyond the central area for acres. Most of the 60 or so sites offer electric and water, many are configured for wheelchair access with concrete pads and sidewalks, and many also have covered picnic tables. The South Llano River flows through western edige of the park where it is popular with rafters and tube-floaters. But, the weather is a bit chilly for tube-floaters today, as we awaken to temps in the low 30’s. It didn’t get cold enough to freeze our water hose, but must have been very close!

After our previous stay in 2011, we knew this would be a tough spot for cellular coverage. But, even with the cell phone booster, we’re not able to get faster than 2G speeds on our Verizon broadband modem. And our T-Mobile phones won’t allow us to teather when we’re roaming on this AT&T network. Unfortunately, it’s a work day and we both have deadlines and projects that need our attention. We’ll enjoy some coffee as the sun comes up over the campground and then get on the road early. We’re headed west toward Kerrville. More from there later…
