As we left Saltillo the fog was heavy, yet the scenery was still beautiful.
It is amazing how quickly the terrain changes as we move northward.
We have seen these signs several times over the last few months. Neither Gerry nor I have any idea what the heck it is all about. Anyone?
As we approach the U.S. of customs we noticed this fence, it goes on for quite some time; however, the fence seems to be damaged every 50 yards or so. That coupled with the fact that the U.S. Customs Border Officer was a Mexican....hmmmm......I have to wonder just how realistic hollywood programs are when depicting the illegal alien issues in the south western states.
Crossing the border was as uneventful as the drive from Saltillo. We crossed at the Colombia bridge. As we drove past Laredo, there were literally hundreds of transport trucks backed up for that bridge. I don't know why they don't use the Colombia bridge. We did see a few transports here, and it is only 1/2 west from Laredo.
We are now tucked in at Lake Casa Blanca International State Park in Laredo, Texas. We have no idea where we are headed tomorrow, or even if we are headed anywhere. We plan to take our time and enjoy our turtle through the U.S., back to Crystal Beach, Ontario.
