Harry and Judy's RV Trip
No Photos 23rd Apr 2011 - Summer 2011
Day 7-Fort Stockton, TX to Carlsbad, NM

This was both a long trip and a short trip.  It was only 190 miles but it was on the flatest, straightest road I've ever been on. 

We went for miles and miles and saw nothing but a few oil rigs sprinkled here and there.  In some places you could actually smell the oil.  The road was really empty, too, very few cars, a few tractor trailers here and there.

Stopped at Monahans Sandhills State Park which is 4000 acres of sand dunes.  It's white, beautiful, hard packed sand that's really easy to climb.  The kids use snow saucers to slide down them on. And, of course, I had to collect some. 

As soon as we crossed over to New Mexico we started to see some farms, although it's so dry and dusty here I don't know how they can grow anything.  A few cows here and there, otherwise nothing.

We got to the campground about 3:30.  Very windy!  We're back in civilization, though, there's a Wal-Mart right down the road which is good because we're out of some staples.
