This flood gauge was an indicator that I was moving out of arid West Texas and moving into Texas Hill Country. This marks what was a gradual transition on the trip from dry to wet. Texas Hill Country is a bit of a tourist area and a favorite spot for cyclists wanting to push themselves. I can remember pushing my bike up hills the first few days, but this is the only other area that I found myself hoofing it up the hills.

Don't tell and no pictures.
Those were my instructions regarding nudity and the hot tub. After fixing two flats this morning from yesterday's ramble through the woods, the wine and the water are a welcome sight. Here at Lazy Laguna Lodge, your room includes a tour of the pecan grove, the river, and the pig a neighbor just shot. They weren't expecting me, but then the map had a B+B marked at the intersection with 55. I had to investigate. There wasn't a sign, but David drove up and filled me in. They only really cater to the cyclists who use the ACA maps. It's the only place they advertise... wouldn't want too much business here. The ranch I'd been riding past and took pictures of is theirs. They knew exactly which bush had the pink flowers. I didn't quite make it to Camp Wood, but the smoked BBQ beef and chicken was phenomenal and you just cant pass up an authentic rifle toting ride around a ranch on a Ranger (suped up golf cart).
