After our long walk we went back to our cozy RV and I made a breakfast that would stick with us a while. Yes it was French toast, bacon and eggs. How did you know?
Today was awesome…We got up early and let the dogs run in an area behind the RV park that displayed the most beautiful sunrise. The air was crisp, but that even made our brisk walk feel better. It sure has been fun waking up to this for the last couple of days.
After breakfast, we loaded up the dogs, said goodbye to the sleeping cat, and headed for Big Bend National Park. We already knew the park wasn’t very dog friendly, but we were able to work with it and have a lot of fun, anyway. After looking at some of the sites, we went to the beginning of the short trail that leads to the Santa Elena Canyon. We left the dogs napping in the car and walked the trail to the spot where we could see the 1500 foot high walls of the canyon towering above the Rio Grande River. It was frightening to walk up the narrow stairs and rocky paths, but the views were totally worth it. In the first picture, you can see the opening to the canyon. In the second, you can see three levels of the climb. I was about halfway up when I looked down to take the picture.
It was an invigorating and fun day. We’re leaving tomorrow. I’ll let you know where we’re going as soon as we decide…
