Fort Stockton, to Big Bend National Park to Davis Mountain State Park. Davis Mountain wasn’t on our original itinerary but got added when New Mexico wanted us to quarantine for 14 days if we stopped in the state
A view of the mountains in southern Texas as we approach the park.

In the campground at Davis Mountains State Park. The Davis mountains are of volcanic origin which was a real surprise as I think everything we had seen in Texas previously was sedimentary.
On to Guadalupe Mountains National Park, a brief visit to Carlsbad Caverns National Park, and finally off to El Paso.
The Guadalup Mountains, home to the highest place in Texas at 8,751 feet, is visible from a long ways away. This shot was in the 5-10 mile range but we had been seeing it for a quite a while
The view from the campground by day and night. I don’t know how far away those lights are, but I can’t find anything on Google Earth except some oil fields and the town of Pecos which is over 80 miles away.
Carlsbad Caverns was quite impressive but pictures of Stalagmites and Stalactites look pretty much the same from one cave to the next so here are two just for the heck of it.
The drive to El Paso and our stay at Fort Bliss RV Park didn’t have anything we felt worth taking of a picture of. So, it is on to page 11
