2012 Thanksgiving Texas Road Trip

Our 2012 Thanksgiving Texas Road Trip was full of friendship and fun. Camping Friends and Commuter Family (us, of course) started in Eldorado & Sonora, Spelunking Rocks! (click for post), where our caving experience was supreme. We stopped at Fort McKavett (click for post) on the road to Buchanan Lake to spend the rest of the week at Canyon of the Eagles.

We set up our Pop-Up at Canyon of the Eagles RV area while Camping Friends bunked down in a wonderful cabin with lake view. 

Our highlights are best shown in pictures ...

Oldest Son, Commuter Husband & Youngest Son hike Thanksgiving morning at Canyon of the Eagles.
The Canyon of the Eagles Nature Park Reserve had the best marked Trails ever - even the Not A Trails! 
Look closely at all the Sonora Cave DIRT! We finally got to hang the wet clothes at our campsite. 
This is the table where we had Thanksgiving lunch - Texas Hill Country (although lake is super low.) 
Of course, the guys still watched Thanksgiving football ...
Friday brought the boys' favorite - bows and arrows! A tournament was organized with Oldest Son victorious.
Friday lunch: Cooper's Pit Bar-B-Que in Llano. Boys loved the cabrito (goat) - adventurous eaters for sure.  
The clump in tree on left is eagle's nest and the spot in tree on right is the mother eagle.  
Youngest Son lighting Shabbat candles, with wine in Styrofoam and bagel chips wrapped for "Challah."  
Commuter Husband in kippah snuggling with Oldest Son around Shabbat night fire. Thankful indeed. 
Ugh - teaching Youngest Son & Oldest Son how to break camp and take down Pop-Up.
One final Road Trip stop - The Billy the Kid Museum in Hico! 
Who knew? 
Youngest Son & Oldest Son checking out the Hico Jail. 
Truly thankful for this 2002 Ford Expedition and Coleman Pop-Up.  Many miles and many, many memories over the years.
