Day Twenty | March 19, 2021
Del Rio, TX to Camp Wood, TX
The first 40 miles or so today were on roads that bordered huge ranches with fancy entrances and high fences. They apparently cater to hunters by raising exotic animals. We saw one antelope.
We got off busy Highway 90 at Brackettville, turning onto Highway 334, a “ranch road.” Ranch roads are lower quality than Farm roads, which are lower quality than County roads, etc.
Spring is coming here! We saw Indian paintbrush and other wildflowers (not bluebonnets yet). We are traveling towards “Hill Country” and we are seeing more greenery. It is quite interesting to see the season change in just a week. With a little rain and some sunshine, the landscape is much greener than last week when I was in Fredericksburg.
It’s funny how cows are attracted to cyclists — they often stare or even come toward you. They think it’s meal time . . . then they are off and running. The accommodations at Camp Wood are no-nonsense.
