Here we are at Day 4 of our grand adventure westward. At this point we have more behind us than we have ahead of us. We began Day 4 in Abilene, Texas. Again another gray day but no rain for which we were thankful.
Texas is a very large state and the landscape was varied. At first we saw a lot of these wind turbines, mostly around Sweetwater.
We saw many of these 5 years ago when we went to Iowa. Even having seen them before their size and quiet whishing is still impressive.
We also saw a lot of oil wells. We were in Texas after all. Sometimes we saw wind turbines and oil wells in the same field.
The land is vast and expansive which is reflected in the highest speed limit we have seen in our travels in the US.
As you can see in the photo above and the one below, we began to see a little bit of blue in the sky and the flat land gave way to mountains rising in the distance.
Then, finally, a Texas mountain under a nice blue sky!
Soon the sun began to set and it was dark when we crossed into New Mexico. I made a valiant attempt to take a photo of the welcome sign. Use your imagination on this one.
Thus ends our travels on Day 4.
love & hugs,
