The Davis Mountains, West Texas. One of the state’s sweet spots. Somehow this was the first time I’ve been out that way, and since I’ve been in Texas on and off for about 5 years, that’s sort of uncalled for.
And this time I only spent one day there.
I’d really like to check out more of the state park next time around, as well as The Nature Conservancy area.

Got a good hike in with great views, lots of cool cacti, some birds, a ton of javelinas around at night, fox, and a fun time freaking some little hoodlums out who wouldn’t shut up near the tent. Good stuff! This time it was just a quick stop on the way to the Gila Mountains in New Mexico.
