We are on a Christmas deadline, so we are going straight across the Texas panhandle on our way to our daughter’s in North Carolina.
Here is not much to see of Texas along the I40, but we sure did see a lot of wind turbines. Hundreds and Hundreds of them and even some new power line towers making their way up into the fields to collect the energy.
Someone suggested we visit the RV museum in Amarillo – Amazing, This was a trip back to the 30’s, 70’s and 80’s.
We surely enjoyed it and the price was right – FREE.
After some lunch, we continued East and just a few minutes out of town, we saw the largest cross in the Western Hemisphere. Notice the full sized trees next to it. There is also a way of the cross around the monument.
The highway in Texas does not seem to have rest stops. Instead, they have picnic areas. There is no big parking lot, just a pull over, but there are picnic tables with large structures to provide a shady spot for your lunch.
The further East we proceeded, the lower we got and our sinuses thanked us. Our altitude was a more reasonable 500 metres above sea level.
That was the extent of our journey in. Texas. Moving on to Oklahoma.
