Journal Entry:
A traveling day. The high point of the day was stopping at the Davy Crocket Memorial, and that wasn't too high. The state park I'm staying at is pretty, but there's not really anything here. The campground has a playground and "lake" (it's maybe 15 yards across) as it's high lights. One cool thing was the fireflies. There weren't a whole lot of them, but I think I was about 8 the last time I saw any. They are magical.

Observation: Texas is the only state where I've seen "No Guns" stickers on some of the doors to businesses. I'm not sure whether I'm surprised at them, or at the fact that they're only on some doors...

Realization: I haven't seen a Starbucks since Las Vegas. I wonder how long it's been since I went almost two weeks without even seeing a Starbuck ad?
