Miles and Miles and Miles -- 10/1/2013 -- Day 144

As we leave El Paso this morning, we have a good view of the Rio Grande River and Mexico for several miles.  Once I-10 takes a turn away from the river, we come to another checkpoint at Sierra Blanca, 80 miles to the east.

All is calm, but a patrol car is poised for the chase.  We see cameras trained on the arriving traffic.

ABC news (and many other news broadcasters) reported that Willie Nelson was busted here in the year 2010 for possession of marijuana found aboard his tour bus.

We are cleared to go and make some miles on this mostly straight highway, which posts a speed limit of 80 mph.  

Our scenery changes from desert to gorgeous Hill Country with its rock, its cedar scrub trees and Texas live oak.

We are almost to Kerrville, where we will spend a restful evening after miles and miles of a long drive across Texas, and dream of the Tropical Tip....
