Where We Be
We took a short detour during our
drive from Houston to Colorado to
stop and see the bluebonnets in
Ennis, Texas. Located southeast
of Dallas, Ennis is home to the
Official Texas Bluebonnet Trail,
and if you're anywhere near the
area from mid-March to mid-April,
it's worth a pause. Of course, each
year the peak bloom varies, so it's
best to check online before you
go. The local tourist office in Ennis
can also give you a trail map that
tells you where the bluebonnets
are peaking at any given time.
After the pretty bluebonnet pics,
you'll see a few bonus photos
from our drive north along I-25 in
southern Colorado. As you can
see, we passed through quite a
