... leaves the mountains and enters the desert created it our little ecosystem. I feel as if it is one of the most beautiful little place that I have been.

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.

A good night - excellent music from the Paper Moon Shiners, great Mexican food and good company for drinking!

If you enlarge the image you may be able to see the sign on the ship that says "desert booty". Yep.....there you have it. How could I forget the "Passing Wind" exhibit. And as proof that we actually visited Terlingua, John posed next to their sign. What a ...
