Glad your trip is going so well. I am pretty sure you're not missing our current temperatures....
Definitely check out the bats if you can - incredible sight!
I learned that the bats aren't here at this time of year. Maybe they all go to the Grand Canyon and smash into trail runners.
Now I feel like I should go back and re-read your Grand Canyon report. Enjoy that Texas hospitality!
Here's the excerpt from around March 17 or 18:
Then we kept getting swooped by bats and Liz would shriek every time they came close. They bumped into me a few times and it was kind of cool
Ah, too bad about the bats....
Welcome back though! :)
