A Grand Adventure to the Grand Canyon: Day 6

April 8, 2015
Caprock Canyon State Park

The drive was sure was boring this time. Lots of plains in Oklahoma and into Texas. Brushy fields as far as you could see. Then plowed fields, acres and acres of them. The houses were few and separated by miles.
At 5:30 we arrived at Quiteque, pronounced “kitty-quay” population 411. The park was only a few miles from the town. It was 95.7 degrees in the sun. The horses have individual paddocks which is nice and there is water for them, but none for us. We filled up at Robber’s Cave, so we are good.

This is a primitive camp, so no electric for the camper. The winds are gusting strong and there is a tornado warning out for the area. We seem to be hitting a lot of natural bad weather! There are 25 miles of trails through scenic canyons and the official Texas State Bison Herd lives here.
We were warned to put our feed out of reach and to remember that the females are having young and are cantankerous. I saw a coyote nosing around as soon as we settled in. Later we drove up to the bathhouse at the Honea Flat camping area and saw prairie dogs and deer.


Before we fell asleep we heard the coyotes howling.
