A late start again today, but another very short driving day. We pulled out of 40 West RV Park in Shamrock, Texas around 11:00 a.m. heading for Tucumcari, New Mexico, only about 200 miles or so. We had an incredibly beautiful day and not much traffic. How lucky and a girl get on a Friday the 13th?
I love the Texas sky on days like today. So blue, and the clouds are awesome!
Isn’t this just gorgeous! Those are the big round hay bales in a field of green grass under a blue and white sky.
This water tank has been leaning since we started driving up and down I-40 in 2008. We always wonder if it is going to still be standing the next time we come through.
P.U! That is a feed lot full of cows west of Amarillo. We smelled it quite a ways before we saw it. Still want that burger?
Every once in a while, we are rewarded with a truly beautiful scene, such as this one:
We crossed over into New Mexico and had about forty miles to go to Tucumcari.
We pulled into the Flying J in Tucumcari for fuel before going to the campground for the night. They are getting $3.999 for diesel here.
Then it was just about a half mile to Mountain Road RV Park to spend the night. Not a bad day at all.
