Something I don't miss from Texas

Look closely at the center of this picture. These pictures were taken at Palo Dura Canyon in west Texas. I am glad we never ran into these fellows on our vacations here.







These pictures make my skin crawl. Just one of these guys is scary but a herd of them all together, crawling all over one another. Run screaming!

Palo Dura Canyon was one of our favorite family vacationing spots. You can't tell by these photos, but it is really a beautiful place to visit. I loved exploring the different caves, swimming in the river (there is a river right fam? Is my memory correct?) and generally climbing all over anything that I could get my hands on. I received my worst sunburn at Palo Dura Canyon, the only time my burn bubbled into excruciatingly painful blisters. I re-apply my sunscreen more often now.

Hi Vanessa,
My name is Lindsay and I came across your blog because I was looking for reflections from past volunteers with the 'English Opens Doors' program. I'm looking into participating in the program and wanted to see what past participants had to say about it. Sooo...I did a google search and your blog came up. I was hoping to ask you some questions and get some feedback from you on your experience. If you have some time, I would really appreciate the chance to exchange an email or two with you. My address is lindsaykhaas@gmail.com. Thanks alot!

EEE eeee eeeeee! Yikes! Heebee geebees hullabaloo!

I was not prepared for that! I've never been to Palo Duro; its so far North. Now I'm not sure I can ever go because of those snakes!

I hope all is well with you. Love love.
