We stayed in Van Horn, in a large parking lot behind the McDonalds, along with a lot of other trucks for the evening. IMG_9082  IMG_9085  IMG_9091  IMG_9095  IMG_9112  IMG_9115  IMG_9119  IMG_9122  IMG_9124  IMG_9129  IMG_9140 

We could see this blimp, below picture, for quite a few miles. We were thinking it might be a weather balloon, but found out that it’s a blimp surveillance system to help patrol the border. On the second picture we can see the “tether” to keep it grounded.

This took us to Bend Bend Ranch State Park, which will be my next post.
