Thursday we drove over to Alpine to find some food for the girls. Since they eat a natural food from Petsmart we knew this would be a search. In and out of every store and vet we quickly discovered our girls are very well cared for and a bit spoiled. Not much choice except Purina, Science Diet and Gravy Train. We ended up buying some hamburger, brown rice and chicken at Porter’s Thriftway (the local grocery store) which we will cook up and mix with our remaining dog food until we return to Petsmart territory. Then we went over to Sul Ross State University which is a very pretty campus on the side of a hill. This is where the Museum of the Big Bend is located so went in for a visit. Very well done and tells a lot about this area’s history. They also have a separate room for local craftsmen and artist to display their work. Some really fine artists, saddlemakers, painters, silversmiths, etc. Lindy Severns who is the camp host at Crow’s Nest has several items here. She mostly paints landscapes and they are very good.
