Lee Duquette driving past the peaks.
Lee driving past beautiful mountain peaks. This was a very windy trip. The motorhome often shook from the wind gusts so much that if Karen closed her eyes, she would think she on a ship in rough seas.

This road dipped and raised like a roller coaster. Guess that is why certain low sections flood at times and they had a gauge to mark the flood level in the road.

Entering Van Horn Texas. Van Horn sits astride I-10 and is the hub of the Texas Mountain Trail. Within 50-200 miles there are many National Parks, state parks and historic sites including Guadalupe Mountains National Park, Carlsbad Caverns National Park, Fort Davis National Historic Site and State Park, Big Bend National Park, Balmorhea State Park, and McDonald Observatory. Van Horn has 15 motels, 3 RV Parks, 16 restaurants and 9 service stations. Van Horn is in Culberson County, the 5th largest county (in square miles) in Texas. The county is larger than the state of Rhode Island. Elevation ranges from 8,751 feet to valley floors at 3,000 feet.
Below: The RV of The Two RV Gypsies at Mountain View RV Park. It was off season so the park was empty except for two RVs. Nobody was at the office so the two RV Gypsies put their money in a box to pay for the campground. No clubhouse, pool, or extra amenities. Seems like it was just an overnight place for most RVers.
The ground was full of burrs. Guess that's the price you pay sometimes for the great outdoors.
