I snapped a few pictures on my phone during my recent trip to San Antonio, Texas. While it was a work trip, I did get to visit some great sites and enjoy some incredible food. And I got to visit my good friends and classmates from Kansas, Phil and Megan.
A burial tomb at the Cathedral of San Fernando, said to contain the remains of David Crockett, William Travis, and Jim Bowie (not likely, but who knows):
The Alamo (although not as it looked during the Battle of the Alamo):
Armadillo races at the rodeo:
A Texas longhorn:
Our great seats at the rodeo:
One of the many PowerPoint slides with way too much text:
A beautiful view from the observation deck at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science:
Game night at the Lindseys:
I’ve loved watching a Bristol race ever since I started watching Nascar. It intensified even more after my dad and I attended a race at Bristol Motor Speedway in 2006 (the weekend of the snow-delayed Busch race):
[I apologize, I know these pictures are terrible, taken with a disposable in overcast/snowy conditions. Thank goodness I have a DSLR now.]
This week, Scene Daily has put together two great articles that exemplify why I love Bristol. They’ve printed a list of memorable Bristol dustups (who can forget Earnhardt-Labonte?). They’ve also printed a list of the ten most memorable Bristol races. Go check them out, and then hit YouTube to see the highlights of those races. And you’ll see why I love races at Bristol.
