I feel the need to preface this post with a few quick claps , but I can save it for another day. After a fun-filled day in Austin, we headed to San Antonio to see the famed Alamo and walk the River Walk. Touristy, yes – but still fun.
We splurged on lunch at Boudro’s on the River Walk – well worth it! We ate Mexican food for four meals in a row while in this area… when in Rome?
After leaving San Antonio, we headed southwest along the Mexico border en route to Big Bend National Park. Although we knew we were taking the scenic route, we were surprised at what the two lane had to offer along the way. We stopped at the Amistad Reservoir for a quick photo op and kept on trucking toward Big Bend.
We stopped for lunch at a visitor’s center dedicated to Judge Roy Bean, a justice of the peace and self-proclaimed “Law West of the Pecos.” Bean ran a saloon and often held court right there. A man after my own heart…
Next up – bears, mountain lions, rattlesnakes, and javelinas?! Big Bend National Park!
