I've been switching from reading running blogs to reading "retirement" blogs. Those are blogs of folks that have taken the plunge and become part of the traveling RV family. Some are full-timers, some part-timers, but all are on the road and writing about their adventures. I don't think I could EVER do a daily journal - my life just simply isn't THAT interesting, but I do think I could update when we travel and take our pictures.
With that thought in mind I went back to the next trip we took after we went to Palo Duro Canyon over Thanksgiving of 2012 (can you believe that is almost two years ago now!). Our next trip was spring break and we took off to go camping at Inks Lake State Park.
After we got our campsite set up we went for our first hike. Our site was close to the Devil's Waterhole so we walked there first.

We then decided to walk another trail closer to the lake to look for spots where we could set up to shoot the sunrise. Love seeing the native plants along the trail and sharing the view overlooking the lake as the sun slowly set.

Have you ever looked at a Yucca from the top?

Love the God's Rays showing through the clouds over the lake in this view

I had never really looked at Yucca blooms close up before, they are really quite pretty!
I loved the play of light on the cactus and rocks as the sun set.
And finally at the end of the day the deer came out to play!
That's all for today - but I'll come back soon to share sunrise over Devil's Waterhole and our trip to Longhorn Cavern State Park as well.
