JULY AND IT'S HOT!

Hi folks, hope all is well, plenty hot for me now, hope your not getting over heated, it can happen before you know it, so stay hydrated.
Thought I would post some photo's for your pleasure.
This is at the north end of Pinto Canyon, south of Marfa about 30 miles, about to start our descent into the canyon, we had a long conversation with a border patrolman here, and he told us of catching 35 illegals in one bunch just a few days ago right below us in the photo.
Some old adobes about 4 miles into the canyon, looked like a good place to stop.

At the cut off to Chinati.
Old bridge of the past washed out, this little creek has never been dry in all the many years I have crossed it, this lower Pinto Canyon north of Ruidosa.

Desert willow in bloom on FM170 east of Ruidosa.


Fort Leaton near Presidio





My adobe for the night in Terlingua, small but really nice, and close in Ghost Town.
I met a lady and her husband on the porch when there, and failed to record their names, he works at the Terrell Gas Plant, and they have a home there in Ghost Town, and I think they said they live in Bulverde? If she see's this post, I hope she will comment or contact me, it really bugs me to meet nice folks, and forget their names!

We have quite a long while of hot dry weather ahead of us, so try to stay cool, and enjoy.
Thanks for stopping in.

FIRST WASH OUT SOUTH BOUND FROM PECOS RIVER @ PANDALE

This is what we first encountered when we left the river crossing, no barricades, or anything to indicate the road was washed out,.



The photo does not do justice to being there, it was about 3 feet straight down, then up to get through it after piling rocks on the edge, we eased through, but this was the easy one, more later.

PANDALE ROAD TO LANGTRY

Hi folks, just a minute to post, will try to again sooner than later.
Just a few from the Pecos river crossing area on Pandale road south of I10 in April.


My friend Jeff had never been on this road, so it turned out to be quite an adventure for both of us, more on that later.




We were there right after a flood, and were in for a surprise as we went south from Pandale.

The flood water was about 20 feet OVER that Pecos river bridge in the background.


Now, on south on Pandale road.
This was one of 2 very tricky to traverse obstacles.............more on that in the next post.

Hope you are all well, we have had some hiccups like everyone, more on that later too.
Take care, tell your family and friends how important they are to you, and thanks for stopping in, ps, don't take this road till you verify condition with County Sheriff, please.
