On our way to Fort Davis, Texas, we pass a lot of Border Patrol then something curious came into view. It was a dirigible/balloon tethered to a ground station. As far as we could determine, it had a lot of cameras and maybe some sort of radar.
Our spot at the Davis Mountains State Park was very nice. They did have Wi-Fi but it was limited. There is no cell signal at all in the park.
We took a drive up on "skyline" drive. It gave some views of McDonald Observatory. We would liked to have visited but because of the current restrictions it would have been pointless.
The valley was pretty.
The CCC built the park. Many of the structures are original. Pretty neat.
In the valley beyond the park is a HUGE green house. I do mean huge. The information I found was that it was the company has 5.7 million square feet of greenhouses in the area. When we drove by, it was clear that the greenhouse was more than 20 feet tall. It seems that these are growing tomatoes and the plants are huge. I guess when you control everything and have a lot of sunlight you can grow a lot of plants. They mentioned on their web site that they could quickly convert these to growing Cannabis if Texas's laws changed.
Javelinas walked right past the 5th wheel this morning. I think they can best be described at small hairy pigs.
We are a couple who have started on a new adventure...
