We arrived at our first Texas destination, Balmorhea State Park, in the dark. So we really didn’t have any idea how this place looked in the daytime. This campground is actually set-up pretty cool. Every site is surrounded by a picnic area (many are covered by these white adobe shelters) and a tiny island that houses the electric and water hook-ups… and you get to pull through to your own section of the paved road.
The 77,053 square foot San Solomon Spring is the focal point of Balmorhea State Park. From 22 to 28 million gallons of water flow through the spring-fed swimming pool each day. Here are Dan and Ava touching one of the springs during our morning walk.
All that screaming in the pool worked up our appetites. It was time for Dan to try out his new disposable grill that he bought online for some ridiculously low price. None of us were too sure we would be eating tonight.
