West Texas

It’s been a fun summer with a few travels under our belt.  We found ourselves returning to Balmorhea State Park by way of our 1962 Airstream trailer.  To be more familiar with the area, it’s near Marfa, TX and the Davis Mountains.  This time we camped out here and didn’t explore as much as our last visit.  We did make a day trip to Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico which was very cool!

Balmorhea State Park is located on the San Solomon Springs in far West Texas… in the High Desert of the Trans-Pecos, to be exact.  We decided to let the kids take full advantage of learning how to snorkel in the unique spring fed pool.  It’s basically a place that seems part swimming pool with a constructed pool/hard floor and then drops to 25 feet deep where there are rocks, plant life, Texas Soft Shell Turtles and rare fish only found here.

During this trip, I primarily pulled out my iPhone for photos. As you can see, my kids are part fish.

Here’s what our last trip looked like when we stayed at El Cosmico (one of my favorite places… next time it’s girls’ trip here!) in Marfa and the Indian Lodge in the Davis Mountains.  I have a hand-full of photos in my shops from this trip.

  • Jeri - Glad I was able to find you! Lol. This looks like such a cool place! Robert & I just may have to take a mini vacation there. But, we still need to get together!ReplyCancel
