So on September 11th, 2017 we made our way out of Texas for our “Dry Bones Tour 2017.” We woke up in Dallas at our friend David Bradwell’s house, did a little morning swimming, and filmed an acoustic music video for both Profetic Calaveras and the Zion Spencer Band. Then we headed out towards Amarillo to meet with Trace, Zion’s cousin who prayed blessings on our trip. After heading out of Amarillo at about 11 P.M. we kept heading west, wanting to leave Texas before the next morning.
We made it to New Mexico at about 12:30 A.M. and quickly searched for a State Park in the area, where we could settle for the night. Santa Rosa Lake State Park was the place we decided to settle in, and at around 2:30 A.M. we were there. It took about $10 to ensure a campsite, and it took about 30-40 minutes to pick the perfect place to park – I just wanted to go to sleep but the guys kept searching for the best campsite. Finally, we found a site next to picnic tables and bathrooms, with a good view of the Lake; although it was too dark to see anything.
Waking up at the State Park was what we needed for a fresh beginning to our out-of-state tour, the view was amazing and it smelled like dew as soon as we opened the van doors in the morning. We made a plan for the day, hiked around the park, meditated, and took some amazing pictures of the landscape. By noon we were ready to head back on the road and hopefully hit Arizona by nightfall.
We loved Santa Rosa Lake State Park and all agreed that it was the perfect started to our tour. We felt as if as soon as we crossed the border into New Mexico there was a crazy new fresh feeling to the tour and it uplifted our mood to be able to be around nature miles from any city traffic, and stress.
