San Angelo State Park

Will we ever get out of this stuff??  We are here in Texas in that Severe Storm picture!  Hopefully it wont really happen... We already have the high winds, and we can handle some thunder and lightning... we just don't want one inch size Hail or a Tornado!

We arrived at San Angelo State Park, in San Angelo, Texas on Friday afternoon, after an uneventful 104 mile drive from South Llano SP.

As you can see from these pictures, our site is huge!  But besides the spacious sites and the quiet, there isn't alot exciting here at the park.  We put up our wind screens, and they do wonders... the wind has been howling but inside our shelter we are all cozy.

We are looking forward to visiting areas of San Angelo, but haven't yet.
Yesterday morning (our first morning here) we were startled by a loud knock at our door.
  Jeff looked out the window, and I heard him say "You're kidding me" then he opened the door. 
At the door, were Alan and Phyliss!

Some people just cant get away from each other!  Since meeting at Sugarite Canyon in New Mexico in June 2010, we have run into each other at San Antonio TX, Custer SD, Silver City NM, San Marcos TX, and now San Angelo TX! 

We enjoyed playing games in our wind shelter last night.  A variety... Mexican Train, Golf, Skip-bo, and LRC.

Al and Phyl left this morning, but we expect to see them up the road at Palo Duro SP near Amarillo.  We've also met another couple from Michigan.  They are leaving tomorrow for Caprock Canyons SP, and we plan to meet up with them there in a couple days.

That's all for now folks!


  1. Love San Angelo. We didn't hit Caprock Canyons SP. You will LOVE Palo Duro SP. Great hiking trails for sure. Enjoy your week. ~wheresweaver

  2. We are in Albuquerque and it is bad here too. Mother nature is having fun at our expense but we will sit tight and hope it improves, I hope it improve your way too!

  3. Funny how you meet up with folks on the road...guess the world isn't as big as we think...LOL. Hope the bad weather moves out quickly!

  4. Real cold here for a couple of days. Snow on the mountians around us but none here at the park. Suppose to warm back up later this week.

  5. Nice to see you met up with some of your friends, sounded like a fun evening.

  6. I realize those are forsbobet doggies but I would be hard pressed not to eat one ;)
