Road Trip, Part II

Made a second trip down to Leroy on Saturday - had to hold down the stand while hubby did a small show for the locals.

In the spirit of road trips, I opted to take an alternate (and technically more direct) route and see a bit more of the Texas countryside. After I got past the major suburbs of DFW, I headed down Highway 157 and went through Venus, Griffith, Maypearl (where I caught Hwy. 66), Files Valley, & Itasca. I missed a turn somewhere and ended up back on my normal I35W . Also passed the outskirts of Hillsboro, Chatt, Abbott, West (which I mentioned the other day), and Ross. While I was in Leroy, had to visit the truck stop in Elm Mott to do a bit of laundry for my boys.

A lovely summer thunderstorm blew through. I wasn't up on a hill will a vista view, but we watched the dark thunderheads roll over. The rain didn't start until the fireworks show ended, so that was a blessing. After that, my daughter and I trekked home, watching the heavenly fireworks in the eastern sky. It was nice to have a bit of rain to cool the temps and keep the threat of a burn ban as low as possible.

I love road trips too! Ours are through the mountains, with rivers and creeks nearby, but the wide open prairie is beautiful too.

Sounds perfect, Jen. We should all escape like this from time to time :)
