Take scenic Hwy 16 north out of Bandera. You will be traveling through the Medina River Valley crossing this beautiful river several times as it meanders through the hills. Approximately 8 miles out of town, you will come to what the locals refer to as the “Tree Tunnel” where hundred year old live oak trees engulf the highway. Proceed on to the town of Medina, 13.5 miles from Bandera. Medina is home to the Texas International Apple Festival – and a great place to get one of the best apple turnovers in the world. Continue north out of Medina approximately 6 miles where the Medina Children’s Home is your next landmark. Koyote Ranch Hill Country is 1.8 miles north of Medina Children’s Home on the west side of Hwy 16.

This was a great trip. We flew out of Dallas to Los Angeles. We met up with a dozen friends at the hotel in Redondo Beach, CA. It was around midnight when we arrived at our hotel and we were exhauted.
The next morning everyone had breakfast together before loading into a limo. Today was the limo tour around Beverly Hills and Hollywood.
We visited the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Gehumans Theater, Drove down Rodeo Drive and took pictures of the historic Hollywood sign. We had lunch at a small restaurant near the beach. We were gone most of the day on our limo tour. We had a great time even though our driver kept getting lost.
This cruise was with Princess Cruise Lines. It was a much nicer ship then the Carnival Ship we traveled on before.
Our cruise took us to Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas.
Puerto Vallarta has a tropical climate and white sandy beaches. This was the setting for the movie “The Night of the Iguana".
In Puerto Vallarta we Found a driver to drive around the area. We shopped and watched cliff divers. We had a great time and shot a lot of pictures.
Mazatlan is surrounded by the Sierra Madre Mountains, and is situated on Mexico’s northern Pacific coast in the state of Sinaloa. Old Mazatlán (Centro) has its colorful colonial-style architecture. Just 745 miles south of the Arizona border, Mazatlán is the closest major Mexican resort to the United States.
In Mazatlan we walked the old street of downtown, visited some beautiful old cathedrals and sat in a bar on the beach to people watch.
Cabo is located at the southernmost tip of the magnificent Baja peninsula, Cabo has been blessed with what many describe as the perfect climate. Average year-round temperature is 78 degrees, it is a little cooler in the winter and a bit warmer in the summer. In Cabo San Lucas we walked around and shopped. During the day while cruising we swam and laid by the pool and or bar! Everyone met at dinner to talk about adventures of the day.
