The 5 years I lived in the area were interesting to say the least.
Summer temps ran up and above 120 degrees in the shade during daylight hours .
I learned how to drink tequila up along with a cool Lone Star beer , yo !!!!
And yes that's a skill .
I met some really good folks during my stay and it was difficult to leave the desert and it's beautiful and tranquil way of life .
As you enter the small section Terlingua proper , Please note the spelling of "Ghostown" as one word , it's not "Ghost Town" unusual from the start , just wait until ya stay there for a few days , It gets better. Our daughter and friend along for the day trip 3 years ago.
An old friend Rob , He and a few others developed the horse shoe pits into a great past time sport , when ya got tired of hanging on the porch. just walk across the parking lot and get on a game , And by the way most of these guys can really play the "Game" !!!
