Monday, October 26, 2015 – We saw many interesting and some odd sights while traveling through New Mexico and Texas. Since no where in Louisiana looks like what we saw I wanted to include those sights here for ya’ll to enjoy and for us to look back on!
We crossed the New Mexico state line
We found this Cacti for sale in Walmart. They actually cook it and eat it!
This was the most amazing rest area. The clouds in the mountains were a very neat sight!
This odd looking plant is seen in abundance in New Mexico. It’s got spindly branches covered with green tiny leaves and some we’ve seen with a purple flower on top.
As we drove down the road I kept seeing these round green things along the highway for miles. Begging Roy to stop because you know how I am about potential free produce he finally caved and we stopped. They are watermelon vines just roaming wild! I was so excited until we opened one and they are not nearly ripe. We could have had watermelon for a month if they were ripe!!!
Cotton fields all along the highway. These big rectangular packages are picked cotton.
When we got to Texas the rains poured down and soon we came to Corsicana Texas where the highways were beginning to flood. Since this time both lanes have gone way under water with many cars under water. The traffic on the side that was flooded when we passed backed up at least 5 miles. Those poor people must not have gotten out of that for hours.
This is the absolute lowest we have seen Diesel and Gas prices in three years. We filled Dora and Boots up quick!!
That’s it for our Travels from New Mexico to Texas. Next we’ll be traveling to Louisiana, Home Sweet Home!!
The rains here in Texas have stopped and the sun came out for an hour earlier! Praise the Lord! We’ve heard many reports of high winds and high waters from rain in Louisiana. It just amazes me that a storm that came into Mexico could still carry such a punch when it made it’s way to Louisiana.
Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
