Oct 10, 2010 Altitude in Texas!

JoAnne Morgan

After a relaxing morning, we moved on to our next adventure in RVing!

Our 1st stop was the Odessa Meteor Crater – billed as “The Phenomenon From Out of This World”…well, I am sure it was 50,000 years ago but now it has filled in with sand and rock and you can “kind of” see where the rim of the crater was. Guess you don’t know until you stop to see it!

We were going to stop at the “Museum West of Pecos” however it was closed, but it did give us a chance to see the absolute desolation and bad condition of Pecos. Most everything we saw in the “downtown area” was vacant, boarded up, and nasty. Heartbreaking!!!

Moving on – we arrived at the Davis Mountains State Park in Fort Davis, Texas. Whew! How surprisingly wonderful!!! Elevation 5,000’ - Fort Davis is the highest town in Texas.

Tomorrow we will explore the area, and the Fort…however…tonight was exciting!!!

Coming back into camp after a view filled short scenic drive, we were greeted by a deer, and then a family of Javelinas!! Sandy caught a glimpse of them 1st – and after we brought her into the rig – a family of Javelinas came through the campground, and went right behind our site. See Photos Here

What a fun and fantastic ending to our day!
