Davis Mountains State Park 11/2017


Because it was often cold outside and the truck camper is a wee bit smallish inside, we spent lots of time in our tent just hanging out with the dogs.

Saturday, we went to the only laundromat in Fort Davis.  Davis Mountain Laundry.  They have new machines.  Much better than last year.  Surprisingly, they still take quarters unlike the laundromats in San Antonio that use either stored value cards or tokens.


There is WIFI in the park at some of the bathrooms.  It doesn’t work very well.  Because the campgrounds are surrounded by mountains, there is no reliable cell signal in and around the campgrounds.

At sunrises and sunsets, you get these wonderful shadows and golden glows in the mountains.   I took this at sunset near an old Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) built water tower on top of one of the mountains.  On the other side of the road connecting the park to Fort Davis is Limpia Creek.

This is the stone shelter at sunset at the end of the road (Skyline Drive) on the same mountain.

Tuesday afternoon we packed everything up to be ready to go Wednesday morning.  We got up  early and left for home as the sun was rising.   We drove to Alpine and stopped at the McDonalds for coffee and Egg McMuffins.  Heading east on US-90, we drove all the way to San Antonio.  We were home by 4:00 PM.
