All Good Things Must Come to an End

Alpine, TX

Lost Alaskan RV Park

2020-01-25

So now I am on my way home. Besides I really really needed a shower before coming back into contact with humans.

I drove west out of the park on Hwy FM 170 toward the town of Presidio. Considered by many to be one of the 10 most beautiful drives in the USA. It did not disappoint.

The views were simply stunning

I made several stops along the way. The first was a walk into the Closed Canyon. I had the place all to myself so as the canyon got narrower there was a kind of eerie, mystical and quiet beauty to the hike.

From there I went on to the Hoodoos. A free form hike among the giant monoliths.

An now I am back in civilization. I drove north to Marfa–the California of the Southwest- with its trendy cafes and art stores, but I was not ready to socially roam, so I headed onto Alpine where I found a nice quite out of the way RV Park with a warm shower and WiFi.

Ah Civilization! I have mixed feelings about it. Sometimes I think that I should have been born in the 1800’s to roam the earth like Mark Twain did, only with a digital camera and a computer and my music player and my iPhone and……….

Thanks for traveling along with me.
