We have been enjoying our last few days here at Lake Pointe RV Resort on Canyon Lake in Texas. The spring wildflowers are still going strong and we are certainly glad because we are not fond of the transition into the summer browns that the fields metamorphize into by mid-June. We also enjoyed having the grandkids up here one last time before we move north. We will drive over to visit them in San Antonio this weekend and then head north on Monday if the weather permits.
Our summer plans will focus on several locations we want to visit and the route to them could vary depending on weather, new discoveries or feedback from readers and friends regarding must-see locations! From here we plan to make our way to Minnesota as Sharon needs her annual physical and we decided we should do that at the original Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. The map at the top of this blog is the most direct route to each target location and is in no way our exact route. How we get from here to there remains very flexible and we will for sure enter new states in our RV this year.
We will likely go through Oklahoma, Kansas, maybe Missouri or Nebraska, Iowa and then we will explore western Minnesota. From Minnesota our next target will be Kalispell, Montana to revisit Glacier National Park. Before arriving there we will probably visit both North and South Dakota. After Montana we will amble our way down to Portland, Oregon for a short stay before spending some additional time in other parts of Oregon. From there it will be San Diego CA and Mesa AZ for our 2016-2017 winter stay.
Whew!!! Now that we have “sort of” decided on our summer/fall plans we can focus on what to see and do along the route. If you have any suggestions we certainly would appreciate hearing them. We recognize we can’t see everything or do everything there is to do along the way but that doesn’t mean we aren’t willing to try.
Photos in todays blog are from our park and the surrounding area. We have made several scenic drives and I was lucky to witness the birth of a fawn in the park outside our front windshield from my driver’s seat one morning. This park has served us well in allowing us many opportunities to see our grandkids and it is such a great location to explore this part of the beautiful Texas Hill Country.
