I have to admit I find this northern Texas scenery very restful. Nothing in sight as far as the eye can see, and here the eye can see far!
We arrived in Amarillo around 3:30 this afternoon and settled down in the Amarillo Ranch RV Park. It is a typical private rv park with close sites and close neighbors. This park, however, has plenty of green space to walk the dogs, offers free coffee and donuts in the morning and is close to a delicious, albeit extremely kitchy, steakhouse that has been here for at least 45 years (we ate at The Big Texan Steak Ranch on our first trip out west that many years ago.....).

We enjoyed a great steak dinner, and are ready to turn in early. Our original plans for tomorrow, for the rest of the week really, changed this afternoon. Instead of heading to Albuquerque, we'll continue on US 287 north through the plains of eastern Colorado and into Denver. Our campground for the summer has begun to fill up and it is first come, first served, so we want to make tracks to the Westminster Elks Lodge to make sure we get a spot. We've never driven through eastern Colorado before, so we're looking forward to a new experience.
