Tejas Chapter
Annual Bluebonnet Drive

Saturday, April 11, 2015
Planned by Marco Cordon
Bluebonnet fans keep your fingers crossed for a bit more rain to help the wildflowers, but for fair weather on the day of the drive.

Yes, our Bluebonnet Drive is set for an earlier weekend than usual in an effort to make up the gap since our last drive and to catch the wildflowers in their prime. We will not miss out on the famous Willow City Loop or the scenic roads connecting Johnson City, Willow City, and Fredericksburg.

Lunch is planned at the Woodrose Winery, a favorite stop with a cuisine that never fails to please.

9:00am - Meet at the "Y" in Oakhill (US 290 and SH 71), in the parking lot in front of Gatti's;
(get directions)

Driver meeting at 9:15am;

Take off driving at 9:30am.

Coffee and bathrooms are available at several locations nearby.

Our drive will include back roads to Johnson City, with a rest stop planned at the Stripes Gas Station on the north side of Johnson City off of US 281. We will be at Stripes around 10:15 - 10:30.

Next will come the heart of the drive through the scenic roads northwest of Johnson City enroute to the Willow City Loop. From there, cruise by Enchanted Rock State Park toward our lunch stop at Woodrose Winery at 662 Woodrose Lane, near Stonewall, with an arrival time of 1 pm.
Mike Guilette, the owner of Woodrose, is planning a lunch worthy of his past superlative efforts. Lunch Buffet self served will be setup in the Winery.
