Texas: 02/18/2014


Fort Stockton, Texas 
 The largest roadrunner in the world



 Wind turbines


Oil country





 I think this is the smallest Pilot station I've seen


Oil pumper graveyard




Lots of small towns along this highway with a history of oil boomtowns back when, but no more 


A tribute to a trooper killed in the line of duty. There was a geocache here.

 Water is a precious commodity


A "gate guard" on the left. Some oil companies in the south hire workcampers to open/close locked gates at well sites.




 I guess people don't like to take old buildings down.

Right, vineyard?



Lots of cactus

Cattle country, and the big fences and gates




Lots of dead animals on the road - deer, raccoon and tuns of skunks

Brownwood, TX, our stop for the night
