Day 9: Pistachio Land, White Sands NM, Grandy’s, Camping

The day started exactly how I like, hot coffee at my bedside as I slowly awoke. It quickly got even better after a call home to my dad for pre Father’s Day well wishes. After an okay breakfast we made a stop at a roadside attraction that we simply couldn’t pass. The World’s Largest Pistachio. It sure was a big one. After a quick picture with it we wandered through the gift shop until we came to the tasting bar….

“She’s touring the facilities” – Cake We completed our tour of Guadalupe Peak, the highest point in Texas today! I’m the last person to write today, so I’ve already read what the girls have written and I think I need to clarify my attitude toward today’s hike.
