Finally Leaving Austin

Had a great time in Austin over our break..sad that I missed the Ride for the Roses bike ride for the Livestrong foundation that was held the Sunday before we left.

Stopped in Langtry, Texas…home of Judge Roy Bean (the “hanging judge”). Camped at a pretty basic RV park and had an awesome dinner of pasta, … Continue reading Day 23: Sanderson to Langtry, TX
