Ray And Kathy's Winter trip travel blog
















We were greeted by a light dusting of snow this morning. The park was shrouded with fog and the mountains were not visible. The forecast called for an additional day of this weather. We made a trip to the Frijoles Ranch and McKittrick Canyon and decided to head south towards El Paso and Fairer Weather. Along the way we took a side trip to Del Texas on a road called an Agricultural Loop. We passed through some farming areas before returning to the main road. A pretty nondescript side road, the only highlights were a couple of hawks and a very fast Road Runner. A few miles down the road we saw a sign for Hueco Tanks State Historic Site. We did not feel that we could go wrong twice and decided to check it out. What a gem we found. The site is a park set aside to protect a collection of pictographs. We decided to spend a couple of days to explore the place and take a guided tour tomorrow. A hueco is a natural watering hole created in rocks and the park has many that have attracted Native Americans and pioneers throughout history.
