We had a relatively short drive to Fredericksburg, Texas, so we lingered in the Ozona campground until 10:00 AM.
As we approached Fredericksburg, the countryside turned into rolling hills covered with brush, oaks and cedar. We were finally in the Hill Country.
The RV park we stayed at was new and surprisingly close to the center of town. Most anything we wanted would be handy, including a Blockbuster Video. It would be a good place to stay for the next week.
Fredericksburg is an interesting town that still reflects the culture of the German immigrants who settled in the area. Since most of the major highways in the area lead to Fredericksburg, the place is hard to avoid. The major industries are ranching, tourism, retirement and county government. On weekends, tourists from Austin and San Antonio seeking a small town experience fuel the local economy. As proof of its importance as a regional center, a new Walmart Supercenter will open next month.
We will give this county some serious consideration as a place to settle.
