Trip Report - Part 4

Our first stop in Texas was at Caprock Canyons State Park at Quitaque, TX.  If you're wondering how to pronounce the name of the town, it's "Kitty-Kay" according to the welcome sign at the edge of town. 
Caprock is the home of the Texas Bison herd, but we never saw them.

The herd had spent the past three evenings in our campground, but we never saw them.  We did have several balls of bison hair on our picnic shelter. One of them had used the support post as a rubbing spot.
Caprock also has some beautiful scenery.  Canyons of red rock that rival anything we saw in Sedona.

 There is also a nice fishing lake with a swimming area  complete with a playground.
 From there, we had an overnight in Abilene, and then headed to Jim Hogg COE park on Lake Georgetown.
 It made a great place to stay while we attended our grandson's high school graduation.
 The ceremony was rained out - had to be moved indoors at the last minute - and we were only able to see it via closed-circuit TV.  Still, he graduated and we were there, so I guess that counts for something.
Next stop - HOME - I'll have some final thoughts tomorrow.
