This one is all about the road. There is no road more iconic than Route 66. And no stop on that road much more iconic than Cadillac Ranch.
Between Christmas and New Year, we visited the Big Bend area again. The campground we stayed in was in Study Butte. (Said stooody like moody, not study like you would do for a test.) . There was a road that went off beside the campground and I was curious where it went. One of the days, I was on my own so I decided to follow it where it went. Looked at gooogle maps and followed the tracks.
It was a short road, it led to a parking area at the border of the national park at a trailhead we walked down another day. But on this drive, I saw another gorgeous view of the Chisos Mountains.
It doesn’t seem to matter that much where you are down there, there’s nearly always a view.
I’m a fan of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives with Guy Fieri.
I was planning a trip with my dad last spring to Biloxi. A friend from work recommended a place to eat on our way called Darwell’s Cafe in Long Beach which is next door to Biloxi. We were in the right area for lunch, so I made it a plan to stop at this place. Got there and found out it was a place featured on the show. We got what Guy got and it was a revelation. I already knew I liked grits, but I didn’t know yet that cheese grits and shrimp would take it up to a new level. Yowza.
The picture with the poster was a bonus
