Cedar Hill State Park

22 04 2015

Cedar Hill State ParkGood Morning from Cedar Hill, TX.  We’re parked in site #121 of the very large urban Cedar Hill State Park. About 30 minutes from downtown Dallas, this park is an oasis of heavily wooded rolling hills around the large Joe Pool Lake.    With over 300 sites, this place is a maze of roads around the hills and through the trees.  Many of the pads aren’t level, but most sites offer lots of room with wide pads, shade and large grassy areas with a grill, picnic table and bird feeder post.

With nearly all of the metroplex’s TV transmitters on a nearby hill, we are able to lock in 60 over-the-air TV channels.  But, even with this seemingly great airspace, the Verizon and T-Mobile signals for internet access are hit-and-miss at best – maybe there are too many things flying through the air here!  Only about 5 minutes south of interstate 20 and right off of highway 67, we’re only a few miles from what appears to be every major food and retail franchise in Texas.

Uncle Julio's Fine Mexican FoodLast night we met longtime friends at one of our favorite Oak Lawn restaurants, Uncle Julio’s.  If you’ve never been to Julio’s, you’re missing what we consider a true Tex-Mex treat.  The warm, thin and perfectly salted tortilla chips with Uncle Julio’s unmatched salsa can easily fill you up long before dinner arrives.  With melt-in-your-mouth house made flour tortillas, there’s is no place like this for sizzling fajitas, awesome Tex-Mex classics and their famous swirl margaritas.  We thoroughly enjoy our night out at Uncle Julio’s and even more the company of good friends.

Tomorrow we’re headed toward the Texas panhandle, with an overnight stop in Wichita Falls before arriving at Palo Duro Canyon State Park.  More from there…
