In less than 48 hours, Zak and I had made two visits to both Carlsbad Caverns National Park and Guadalupe Mountains National Park. The third leg of our spring break stool lay roughly 240 miles almost due south -- Big Bend National Park.
Marfa where we went through a small storm. Fortunately, we had plenty of advance notice of it.
Aermotor Windmill Company has since 1892. The company was actually founded in 1888, but sold only 24 units that first year. Four years later that number had skyrocketed to 20,000, and the landscape of the arid plains and deserts of the United States would never be the same.
Terlingua. I expected it to be quirky, and was immediately reassured by this piece of roadside art.
Study Butte, but I can't find confirmation online of that. Only that there's a community called Study Butte just east of Terlingua. I assume it's named for this ... butte.
House Sparrow just outside the Panther Junction Visitor Center.
Boquillas Crossing to check out the Rio Grande and evaluate the area as a possible spot for shooting the sunset. The river was a little less "grande" than I'd expected -- narrow and shallow enough that we saw a fellow cross on a mule. But it definitely cut a beautiful swath through the arid landscape.
Much more to come!
