Our destination .
Along the way we will cross the Pecos River 15 miles west of Del Rio . This shot of the bridge that spans the Pecos River , is the highest bridge span in Texas @ 273 feet above the river and over 1300 feet long , was built in 1957. We are at the observation area park near the canyon entrance looking North , Behind me to the South are the Rio Grand River and the foot hills of Old Mexico.
Getting closer , This is the Cactus Capital of Texas , The little town of Sanderson lies along Old Highway 90 . About 100 miles east of Alpine TX , We have driven 500 miles already with 150 more in front of us .
Thanks to all who have been following this freight train of a blog. I know my grammar and spelling is not always correct , (My mother informed me of that yesterday) ! So please be kind to me when I make these little mistakes . In the future coming days I'm real time with the photography and the post of the day.
and that's the way it is !
