Rio Frio, Texas to Ft. Stockton, Texas (Feb. 13, 2012-Feb. 15, 2012)

We departed Rio Frio early and headed north on Texas Route 83 through the Texas Hill Country. An hour later we turned west onto Interstate 10 for the remainder of the trip to Ft. Stockton, 271 miles in all. The landscape changed drastically as we continued west. We entered I-10 just a bit east of Junction, Texas. We were still in Hill Country with lots of tress and shrubbery. And hour later we began to see thr trees disappear and the land get less hilly. Another hour and the land was flat and arid. We had entered the Chihuahuan Desert. It seems we had exchanged the trees for oil wells. Every where you looked there were hundreds of the wells.

We arrived at the Parkview RV Park in Ft. Stockton around 3PM and set up for a very short stay. Our next stop will be Carlsbad, New Mexico. Our stop here was to celebrate Joyce's birthday as well as St. Valentine's day.
