Terilingua, Texas

Terilingua is not your ordinary Ghost Town, populated by several dozen townsfolk. Known as a mining district in the southwestern part of Texas, Terilingua is also located near the Rio Grande. The nearby villages are Lajitas, Study Butte as well as the Mexican village of Santa Elena.

This area is a bonafide desert! A gallon of water per person per day is mandatory! In addition, you will not find a Target, Starbucks, McDonalds, or Holiday Inn!

We were lucky enough to be there for the tail-end of a music festival. This particular day, strangers joined each other in music on the porch of the general store.

It's so quaint In Terilingua, that when you go out to eat, you can look the owner in the eye, like Linda from Long Draw Pizza!

The views in this neck of the woods are something else. I really don't think you can take a bad photo!

There are some quirky things about this area, take Clay Henry, the major! He's a goat. Apparently at a Lajitas town meeting, with the mayor present, someone yelled, 'a goat could do your job better!' I guess they take things literally here too!

The Longhorn Museum is kinda cool, kinda creepy, but more intriguing just the same.

Again, the views...

The golf views were fab as well - love this father-daughter team!

To top it off, our RV Campground - The Maverick - made us feel right at home.

Yeah, I'd say we're finding our footing.

Explore. Absorb. Repeat!
