Texas trip list

John van der Woude  -  www.jvanderw.nl  


In april 1992 we visited Texas (2 weeks): all along the coast (including High Island), lower Rio Grande valley, and a bit of the Edwards Plateau.

In late April 1997 we made a stopover of a few days in Texas again and visited High Island and surroundings only. For details of the latter trip see the report on our trip to Arizona.
