Getting to and from GARNER was sometimes just as fun. Here are examples that some have remembered.
Our families travelled to GARNER each Easter. There were always bluebonnets along the way. All of us got our pictures taken in the flowers.
We knew we were an hour or two from GARNER when driving through Hondo, Texas. There we saw a sign saying, "This is God's Country"
First Train of the trip! Second train of the trip!
Horses count two points and cows one. First one to fifty wins. You have the left and I have the right side of the road.
There were the plants at the Sunken Gardens, the miniature train ride around the park, the San Antonio Zoo. We could spend all day but only two hours were available cause we had to make it to GARNER!
Hondo Creek west of Tarpley. There used to be a low water crossing there and a cliff across the stream where we looked for and found fossils and the kids got wet in the water. Stops like that were fun!
Davy Crockett caps were the rage. We learned a lot of Texas History on that stop on the way to GARNER. Texas seventh grade history was made easier.
Have you ever driven Old Highway 90 from Houston to Garner. Well, our old Honda Trail 90, and Kawasaki 175 was up to the task. It took a couple of days in '71 with an overnight stop at a park near Luling, TX.
GARNER OR BUST!
We trailered the motorcycles home.
Traveling from the west to get to Garner, our favorite places to stop were the Pecos River Big Bridge and the Texas Highway Department's Travel Visitor's Center in Langtry, TX. There is a railroad bridge a few miles upstream as well. Spend some time visiting the museum and gardens at the visitor's center.
