Where are we today ?Today we have a plan, gonna go to Fossil Rim Wild life centre just outside of Glen Rose. Looks interesting enough for us to check things out. The weather is pretty good, overcast today, no rain and about 65f. Great for a drive through tour of this wildlife reserve.
Only about 20 minutes from the campground and a 9.5 mile self guided tour around the reserve $14.95 each for seniors.
The drive around the reserve was excellent, we enjoyed all the different wildlife mostly in wide open spaces and the fact that a lot of them came right to your vehicle expecting to be feed. We did not buy a bag of feed ($8.00) but other people did, so we watched them.
We did have a guide to identify these animals and I attempted to do so with some of the pics below, forgive me if I am wrong.

Then I get to do something I really enjoy. Fire up our Weber Q to grill a cornish hen for the two of us (we split a cornish hen). Made some homemade fries to cook up in our Fry Daddy, some steamed broccoli and we can wind down our day.
