Tonight I am in Lyndon B. Johnson country! This is the area he was born, raised, and ranched. There are national and state parks to visit, which is what I will do tomorrow. In fact, there was a lady working at a roadhouse museum in Delta Junction, Alaska, at the end of the Alaska Highway. She mentioned to me then that she planned on working at the LBJ park in Texas during the winter. I hope to find her during my tour tomorrow.
A pretty morning, with bright sunshine guiding me through some very beautiful scenery along the road. Also many nice small towns to see
As I noticed before, there were some very long trains!
Stopped in San Antonio, visited the Alamo. Another very interesting site, and received a great lesson in history!
Visited the Riverwalk of San Antonio. This is a very nice part of the city where renovation of a run down area had created a pretty location with restaurants, shops, and boat rides through the center of town. Colorful lights have been placed throughout the area for the holiday season. I imagine it is very pretty at night.
Drove to Johnson City, visited the Lyndon Johnson National Historic Park. Received information for the tour I will take tomorrow.
Found a room in Fredericksburg, a German town with a better choice of lodging than any other town in the region. Drove back to Johnson City after dark to see some very impressive Christmas light displays.
