“What? The Texas White House?” you may ask. Yes, there is a White House in Texas. It’s where our 36th President, Lyndon B. Johnson, did his political activity during his presidential. Located in Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park at Stonewall, in this park we can also learn a lot about his birth, childhood, political career, retirement, and death.
The first time we traveled I-55 in Missouri from Texas to Illinois, I saw a billboard of Lambert’s Café, Home of the Throwed Rolls. I turned to my husband who happened turning his head to me, too. “Isn’t it the one in Travel Channel?” I asked him. “Yeap!” said my husband. “One of the best places to pig out or something like that?” I continued. “Yeap!” my husband nodded. “Let’s go there! I want to try it,” I added.
Last Spring Break we went camping and hiking around Hill Country area. Since the only campsite left at the state parks we wanted to visit were primitive ones, we chose to stay at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park in Fredericksburg instead. (Confession: I like camping but I have to stay on the site that has water, and site with electricity is a plus.)
It was less than a week when we decided to go camping and hiking around Hill Country for Spring Break last year. We checked the campsites at the state parks we wanted to visit and of course they already fully booked. But didn’t mean we had to cancel the trip. We knew a place that always had a space and hot showers for just $10 nightly located not too far from downtown Fredericksburg; a place called Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park.
Don’t get confused with the name. It’s not in Colorado. It’s in Bend, Texas, southeast of San Saba and west of Lampasas. I first heard about Colorado Bend from a lady at the store where I volunteered every Monday. She told me about hiking to this beautiful waterfalls and kayaking on the river, the Colorado river. I went online and told my husband that we should check this park out.
