Rest Stop at Quanah, Texas

Pam and I enjoyed our trip to the Texas Panhandle last week.  After stopping for fresh produce and a Starbucks in Tyler, we settled in for a long drive.  We are normally in the Fort Worth area at lunch time and this was no exception.  On one of Pam’s trips without me, she discovered a great Mexican food restaurant on the north side of town.  Many times I try to find a new dish and I ordered a Taco Salad, loaded with quacomole…it was really great.

After leaving the restaurant we took the Hwy 287 exit and headed to the panhandle.  Pam had told me about a really nice rest stop at Quanah, Texas (picture above).  Texas does the greatest job with providing stops for travelers.  I personally think Texas does the best in many things, but I am of course, prejudice.

When we arrived at the rest stop, Pam told me about the sign below:

Are you kidding me???  I had never heard of a rest stop that provided rattlesnakes.  The rest stop was surrounded with flower beds and shrubs, so I guess rattlesnakes had been spotted, and hopefully captured, in the past.  The restrooms are located on the inside of the building as well as outside.  Pam is smarter than me.  She chose the inside restroom and I chose the walk-in outside one.  Rattlesnakes can’t open doors but they can slither through open passageways.

I don’t like snakes…dead or alive.  It’s not too bad taking a pit stop during the day, but with a sign about watching for rattlesnakes, a stop at night is just not okay with me.


This reminds me of Adam, Eve, apples, and the serpent.  The apples were attractive just like the rest stop.  There are many things that are attractive to us, but we must never let our guard down.  Most of the time, it’s not like the rest stop…there are no visible warning signs.  So we must always be alert and seek God’s guidance in all things.
