Our next stop was the highest peak in Texas, El Capitan, in the Guadalupe Mountains National Park. What a majestic spot in the Lone Star State!
We traveled along the historic Bankhead Highway briefly near Pecos and Monahans. Traced as far back as 1916, it was one of the earliest transcontinental highways in the U.S. and ran from Washington D.C. to San Diego, California.
We got to Odessa right before a thunderstorm came through the city. Had dinner at The Barn Door with our friend Melissa Hagins from the Texas Pecos Trail Region. While the meal was great, we loved the fresh bread and butter they served prior to the main course, as well as the cheese block appetizer.
We finished the evening on our trek to find more raspa locations for our Texas Raspa Trail. Mango Tango ticked the boxes and we felt like we owed it to them to try one. This trail is coming together nicely, if we do say so ourselves.
Next we head to the Panhandle of Texas in the Texas Plains Trail Region.
Until next time from Texas … safe travels!
