I was desperate for a hike and Caprock Canyon was closed so I went back to the Caprock Canyon Trailways and hiked another section along the Fort Worth and Denver Rail Way. This time a short 3 mile loop to the Los Lingos Creek Crossing. I was hesitant to call it a loop because the route was actually a straight line with a small tassel on the end. This hike only had an AEG of 100 feet and that was only because when we got to the bridge crossing Los Lingos Creek we headed down to the creek. I got more elevation gain climbing up and down my roof prepping my cooler for this summer. The hike was pleasant and was nice to get out and do something beside cut down trees and mow lawns (glad we don't have lawns in Arizona). I will be glad to get back to Arizona at least for the hiking. It is interesting hiking in different environments though, different plants, and animals. I didn't know there was a different vulture other than the Turkey Vulture, I got a chance to see the Black Vulture. There was lots of wild plumb on this hike and under the bridge it reminded me of our catclaw plants in Arizona, kind of a nuisance. I guess they actually have plumbs later in the year and people make jam out of them.

Texas closed the state parks during this virus but for the life of me I don't know why they closed this park, It is in the middle of no where and believe me there is a lot of that for 200 miles all around Lubbock. The 3 times I have been to the trail along the Fort Worth and Denver Rail there has not been a soul. I guess they would rater we spend our time at Walmart.
