Big Bend Day Two

The River Road from Lajitas to Presidio, Texas



 

Lajitas

 The mayor liked to have his her? ears scratched.




I believe there may have been more than one Clay Henry.

Lajitas Trading Post


 Now a golf club (sigh) there is still a large room dedicated to history of the area, or at least of the cattle ranches.




The expressions obtained by the taxidermists were amazing.





The river at Lajitas is calm, shallow, and in past days was easy to ford.





The original town straddled the river, with people crossing freely for trade.

La Casita was the original adobe building








Most of the set was washed away in a large flood in 2008.

Picnic area on the river



It felt like the river was narrow enough to reach across and touch the other side.




Hoodoos










We enjoyed a great lunch at El Patio in Presidio. I highly recommend it.
