We went out to see the old CCC railroad tunnel which is now a bat cave. On the way back to Fredericksburg we stopped at this old German homestead built in 1800's.
We stopped in a guys driveway to take a pic when he invited us in to see his building with antique cars, displays of 50/60 memorabilia , it was really neat and he was very generous to show it to us.

Last hike of the afternoon was to the hot springs. Wow that water was warm- felt good on our tired feet.Last pic is crossing the border over the Rio Grand. Not to difficult.
Hiked back into the Boquillas canyon.
Stopped at the Rio Grande overlook. When you looked across the river we could spot a small boat. Once we got out we saw walking sticks and beaded scorpions and roadrunners for sale with a money jar setting by them. Mary and I start looking at the stuff and a guy across the river waved at us and started walking over. Sorry for him but we didn't purchase anything.If you look closely behind me you can see him on the Mexico side.
On our way to Rio Grande Village (50 miles) we stopped at Dug Wells. There was a spring and old windmill. Our Enid friends the Perrys.

On our way to Big Bend. We stopped in Wichita Falls TX for lunch at Gidgets Sandwich shop. Thanks to trip advisor! Had some wonderful jalape├▒o broccoli cheddar soup! On to Haskel Tx and camping at a city park. Nice to find a little drug store that would change Dad's watch battery for $3.95-little towns are great.
