Going Home, Day 11 -- March 12, 2012

Austin, TX, to Fort Stockton, TX.

We departed Austin about 8:30 AM and drove west in the fog for most of an hour. By the time we got to the LBJ Ranch in Johnson City, the weather had cleared and we stopped for a nice walk in the sunshine listening to Eastern Meadowlarks sing. Continuing, we hit Interstate-10, and for the first time on the drive home, hit the big road and blasted for home. We stopped several times to stretch Mom's (and my) legs, and one rest area had a few interesting birds (Canyon Towhee, perhaps Savannah Sparrows), but otherwise we just blasted down the highway. We stopped at Fort Stockton for the night, making for a short day. I want to stop at a state park just west of here, and we didn't want to arrive just as they were closing for the day.
