Elizabeth and I went to west Texas this weekend for the Texas Shop Hop (fabric and quilt store stuff), and we stopped at several places along the way.
We went to Davis Mountains State Park and had such a great time. It was already windy and chilly, but we sure enjoyed camping here and documenting lots of neat things. :)
