Oct 8-15: TEXnewMEX TUUR

Culture, Art, History and the Paranormal

We are taking a trip to West Texas where Judge Roy Bean was “the only law west of the Pecos”; and to southern New Mexico to visit an old-style Mexican Plaza, and the research center for the spaceship landing in Roswell! The highlight will be Big Bend National Park, where we will stay in the only lodging within the park. On the way we will be looking for the mysterious “Marfa Lights” which have appeared to many since 1883, and see the mural art and the galleries of the tri- county area near Fort Davis.
