Sonora, TX

At last we are out of New Mexico and {hopefully) safe from any more hail! Note how I am strategically hiding the hail dents in the above photo (ha ha). Okay, so we booked a one night stay at Sonora Caverns in Sonora, TX. I really shouldn’t say “booked” since when I called to reserve a spot, they said their campgrounds are never full, so no need for a reservation. This is a shame because this place is so beautiful and quiet. It has been owned for many generations by the same family and includes pull thru spots with hooks-ups (except sewer) and as a special bonus – – peacocks!!! Yes, these lovely and oh-not-so-quiet fowl freely roam the property, but they mostly stay up by the peahen’s pen. She is in a pen because some rascally racoons ate all the rest of the peahens and she is the only one left. So she is now in witness protection and the peacocks can only visit her through the fence. I really did enjoy the peacocks and you will see why when you see the pics posted below.

Moving on…I also included a sneak peek at the Sonora Caverns which were very interesting. In the pic above, you see a smooth-walled cave, but the cave is completely different as you traverse its corridors. It was a totally different experience than Carlsbad Caverns and I cannot recommend a trip to visit highly enough if you are ever in the area. Everyone here is so nice, and I have never been called “mam” so much in my life, which was really sweet coming from a teenage boy selling me homemade fudge. The fudge was yummy, but you have to be quick when it comes to Joel and fudge (he got most of it)!
