Mad Dash Deer Dodging across Texas to Big Bend
After we left Austin, stopped by Llano to pickup some very important items. Guess what? Cannot remember what they are!
We chose a new route === drove to Mason then on to Medina and took Hwy 190 to Iraan and from there got on I-10. It was a very good choice because the 18 wheelers were not in evidence as they are on I-10. Traffic for the most part was light and we made good time.
Saw wild turkeys, deer and armadillos on this journey. What a treat! Of course as it got dark, we began to worry about keeping a deer from running out and ruining our whole day! Honked the horn to alert them to our passing by and made it without incident.
Got to Marathon about 9:30 ish, and got the the White Buffalo Bar and the bartender said they were closed but she could give us a drink to go. Took advantage of her offer and enjoyed the fire outside, and then walked down the main street before heading off to bed.
