195 Miles – San Angelo, Llano, Georgetown
This is the last day of our Big Bend National Park motorcycle ride. Thanks for following along on our ride. We hope you enjoyed reading about it as much as we enjoyed riding it.
We had another good free breakfast here at San Angelo Inn. This morning was in the 60’s. Nice riding. We gassed up and headed for Georgetown. It was mainly a nice ride. We did see a lot of Blue Bonnets and other wild flowers along Hwy 71 between Brady and Llano. We stopped in Llano and ate at Cooper’s Pit Bar-B-Q. Janet and I have never ate there but heard it was some of the best. We gassed up and headed home. Outside Llano we stopped to see the Bald Eagle nest but we didn’t see the eagles themselves. This is the first time Janet and I haven’t seen them there. We got to Georgetown some time after 2:00. Larry, Jo, Larry and Shirley were to spend the night and head back Saturday morning to Alabama and Georgia but because Shirley had to get back because of a family matter they loaded up and left around 4:00. All in all we had a good time in spite of some cold and wind. I’m looking forward to doing it again (soon I hope). The pictures don’t do any of what we saw justice. You just have to be there to really appreciate it all. I hope everyone else had as much fun as we did. I need to start planning another trip… Maybe we’ll ride the perimeter of the U.S. next.
