We've left Central Texas and are heading for our summer "job" in Colorado. We will take a couple of weeks to make our way north and plan to visit a few new parks on the way. We chose Abilene State for our first stop. This area of West Texas can be pretty stark so we were pleasantly surprised to find a nicely shaded campground.
There are several Civilian Conservation Corp structures here in the park, including the pool house and viewing tower.
Our next stop will be Palo Duro State Park, also known as "The Grand Canyon of Texas".
