... bar!

Terlingua, if you get a chance is well worth a visit. It was a mining town only deserted in the twentieth century yet the dilapted shacks, the rusty cars and buses and the old church are all worth a potter around and great for photo ops. Later in the bar we met up with the "Aussies" a group of 9 or so who had Harleys on the Coast2Coast as well. A good night - excellent music from the Paper Moon Shiners, great Mexican food and good company for drinking!

We enjoyed the scenery ...

Sunday - Lost Mine Trail

Well, another glorious day in Big Bend. We hiked the Lost Mine Trail which is another 4.8 mile hike with desert and mountain views. At the head of the trail we saw our first wild life encounter....three dweeb. Wow! They were tiny but cute. The trail was a gradual incline all the way up with a lot of switchbacks to make the 1100 foot elevation change. Some parts were tree covered but mostly the trail was all sun. All in all ...
