We had a leisurely drive from Potters Creek CG to Comfort, TX this morning. About an hour on some beautiful hill country roads. Too winding and hilly to grab a photo, but we really enjoyed it. We stopped in Comfort for a fill up of gasoline and coffee, then hit I-10
There wasn’t much traffic, so you were free to drive at whatever pace felt comfortable.
Our comfort range was somewhere between 65 and 70. After a stop for lunch in a Texas rest area, we arrived at our destination of Fort Stockton around 2:30 PM. After a short discussion, and a Wal-Mart stop, we decided to travel South to Marathon, TX. That would leave us with only a couple of hours tomorrow to reach Lajita’s.
Marathon is quite the place, billing itself as the place with nothing “to do”. Considered the gateway to Big Bend National Park, it is quite the eclectic little town. The Gage hotel and restaurant is a very unique historical establishment with fabulous dining, or so we hear. As close as we got was the White Buffalo Bar.
Check your horse into the corral until you’re ready to go.
We enjoyed a burger while watching the Saints finish with their playoff hopes.
After a 300+ miles, today, we were glad to get back to the Casita for an early night. Tomorrow, I hope to post from the banks of the Rio Grande…..jc
