Driving from West Texas to East Texas, I saw my first River that actually had water in it!
In West Texas I crossed over this cracked, lumpy depression in the ground that was labeled "Colorado River". I said to myself, that can't be THE  Colorado River, it must be a joke.
In East TX, the water returns, the trees appear - there are clouds in the sky - it's Bayou Country again, and by the time you enter Louisianan it's getting downright soggy.

Crossed the Mississippi at Baton Rouge Yesterday.
Love Crossing the Mississippi in Either Direction.

Spent the night in Laplace - Going to New Orleans today.
The other day when I used the word "testosterone" in the blog - the hits tripled. So how about this? Girls in Bikinis. Let's see what happens...


  1. I love the Colorado River! Both of them. The one in Texas is the 18th in the U.S. and travels 862 miles within the state of Teas where it begins and ends. Been having a drought, but will be back to normal once the Hand quits messing with the weather
    My interest in your log is because I've traveled your adventurous roads many times in the past...but no more, sadly.

  2. Thank you for the info on the Colorado River. I noticed the cracked depression and the sign on the way out and saw it again on the way back and was wishing I had taken a picture of it - so I mentioned it here because I really thought it was some kind of Texan joke! So thanks for clarifying. Good to know you're out there - hope you get to travel the roads again!
