A Real Gem

January 3, 2013
A very interesting Texas State Park not far out of El Paso. Indian petroglyphs. Small park, limited number of sites which are tightly controlled. Good hiking and some scaling. Reservations a must but well worth it; quiet and definitely off the beaten track.

We stayed here in a Travel Trailer.
