Day 26 – Falcon State Park, TX – Gulf Coast / Rio Grande Trip

No Travel Mileage Today

We drove around the park today and tried to go to the dam. We were unable to get close to the dam as the road proceeds across the dam to Mexico. There is a US Customs building as you approach the dam and at that point one is committed to end up in Mexico. Raija forgot to bring our passports plus the line of vehicles entering the states was rather long, so we did a U turn and returned to the park.

There is a butterfly area in the park that we explored. The park plants various plants that feed IMG_0004 both the caterpillar and butterfly stages. Although the area is home to over 300 species of butterflies only the Monarch butterflies were here along with one or two other butterflies.
