Hello Texas

Amarillo, TX
September 25,2013

Joe and I visited Amarillo in April 2012. We had a great time...spent a week here and went to Alibates Flint Quarry, Palo Duro Canyon, and rode the Harley on Route 66.

Well, what a nice surprise to pull in to the Amarillo KOA for a one night stop to find a "Welcome Back!" on the board.

 New this year was the welcome committee...a mariachi band complete with nodding head pup keeping time to the romantic style, soft touch and suave vocals.

This group sure gets around...we heard them last February when we were in Old Town San Diego.

We were thrilled to have the same site, #83. Its an end site with a view of the pasture. A couple of things were missing though...the jack rabbits and a few cottonwood trees...both victims of the drought. 

We had a great time playing ball with Wrecks and Jack and Sally and Dover made friends at Kamp K-9. I love the pet walk here with all the fire hydrants!

When we were walking back to Belle, we did a double you see them?

Thanks for stopping by...until next time,

enjoy the view!



  1. Well, I sure think horses are better than jackrabbits any day! They are beautiful. There's nothing like looking out your window and seeing horses. :)

  2. Nice friendly campground, and the horses are a bonus too.

  3. Looks like a really great park. Even looks like the weather was smiling on you.

  4. Looks like you are alone in the park. Love when you have room to roam.

    Beautiful scenery in those horses. They are gorgeous!

  5. That is quite the welcome including a mariachi band! You are making me think twice about staying at KOAs.

    Love the welcoming horses too!

  6. I don't know if ya'll like to stay in state parks, but I wanted to share with you a Texas State Park called Caprock Canyon. It is located east of Amarillo. We enjoyed staying there. I wish I would have seen your post sooner, but it sounds like you had plans to continue on to OK.

  7. Those horses are cute! Were you alone in the park? I actually like it when the season is ending you have the park to yourselves.
