Oct 7, 2010 A journey through historical structures…then off to the lake

JoAnne Morgan


After our night in Lubbock, we headed out and wanted to stop at the National Ranching Heritage Center…wow…we are so glad we did!

You are greeted with a large display of bronze sculptured steers – then on our way to the center we had a special greeter – Joe Jack-Rabbit.

What an amazing place with original pictures and history of buildings in Texas spanning years 1780-1950’s along with the 48 restored buildings themselves – from dug-outs to ranch homes. It was fun, interesting and educational…we loved it!

Leaving Lubbock we drove past so many cotton fields on our way to Lake Colorado City State Park on the Lake Colorado Reservoir.

I counted three, yes 3 other rigs in the 78 available sites…yep, we have lots of space to roam and camp to ourselves.

We enjoy birding and have already found four new birds. And talk about cactus!!!! Whew...what a place we call “home” until Sunday. See Photos Here
