When you’re going to hit the road for a long day, a great breakfast gets the day going. We elected to begin at El Vulcan Panderia, a tiny little bakery down the street from our campground.
While John worked on trailer-moving details, I cycled down to the bakery to select breakfast treats. What a treat! Grabbed a jelly donut (me) and a bear claw for John, and an awesome chewy soft roll to make us a sandwich for lunch. There were also many traditional Mexican pastries/cookies.
We devoured our goodies, then stopped in for Round 2 on our way out of town. Some of the best baked goods I’ve ever had.
Sometimes the goofiest plans have the best outcome. From San Antonio, our plan was to head to Big Bend National Park for a few days, but the mileage was somewhat daunting for us – over 400 miles, which makes a really long day pulling a trailer. So, we were looking for a place to stay around the 1/2way mark. Decided on a primitive campsite at Seminole Canyon State Park, in Comstock, TX. Ahhhh, the right choice.
We’ve got a spectacular campsite. There are petroglyphs in the Canyon, and we arrived at the Park in time for the last tour of the afternoon, a deal for $5.
It’s pretty inspiring to walk through grounds where natives have communicated via cliff paintings thousands of years ago.
Camping at its best is right here. The only bad thing is that it’s really windy, and we’re perched on the edge of a hill, so the breeze is howling! We had cocktail hour (beer & sushi)
but then headed back inside to get comfortable.
Big Bend tomorrow for at least a couple of days.
