All my life, I'd heard my dad talk about Alpine and about Sul Ross University (where is father was a professor) and now here it all was right before my eyes.
Not surprisingly, he had so many stories to tell. This was the radio station where he worked in high school. He says it still looks the same. Wow - shocker! Lol.
The field where he went to some surprisingly big baseball games.
The old train depot, no longer in use.
His old high school, which is now an admin building.
This made me very glad we didn't get hurt or sick while there - it just didn't look very promising!
However, this was promising. Drive-thru liquor store - who'da thought?
More scenes from around town, including the theater where my dad also had a high school job.
Then we went out to his friend Carol's house on the outskirts of town. I nearly died when I saw the views, the cliffs, the wildlife...
And the house was very cool, too!
Carol accompanied us to her favorite restaurant in town - La Casita. We liked it so much, we ended up going there two more times.
Afterward, we dropped off Carol, dodged some cows in the road, we drove through the hills and enjoyed the full moon rising.
