On the Way to San Antonio

We're now on the road, working our way from the desert to the Big Thicket area of Texas. On the way through Las Cruces, we stopped once again at the Giant Roadrunner (previous post here) made of trash who looks out over Las Cruces. He's dwarfing John in this picture. And here's a very short video I took that gives a close up view:

Then on to the town of Ozona, TX, the county seat of Crockett County -- an easy grab for them because they are the ONLY town in Crockett County. Most of the town has closed for lack of business, but they still have the huge statue in the town square (where the grass really needs cutting) in honor of Davy Crockett. The wisdom of Davy, immortalized on his statue is the helpful phrase, "Be sure you are right, then go ahead." Thanks, Davy.
