Thanksgiving in Texas -- Nov. and Dec. 2010

Day 13, November 26. The gang coalesced at Cathy's house in the morning. By lunch, the weather had cleared and warmed up, and we'all drove out to Pedernales Falls State Park for the afternoon. Uncle Peter (dad's brother) and Aunt Mary-Helen met us there. Uncle Peter found crinoid fossils for us to see in the limestone at the falls, and Andy found an interesting beetle with what appeared to be parasite eggs stuck to its back. After hiking around the falls until sunset, we headed to the world famous Salt Lick for real Texas BBQ.

We like to support independents, but we like nicer motels too
