Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – August 17, 2016

***

One of the best trips I ever went on was to the area of Ft. Davis, TX. It’s in the far south west of the state. Spectacular views everywhere in the triangle of the towns of Ft. Davis, Marfa, and Alpine. Marfa, of course, is where we saw the famous Marfa Lights. McDonald Observatory is one of the world’s largest telescopes, and they have a very nice visitor’s center, and hold star parties. Indian Lodge is where we stayed. Very rustic, and wildlife is everywhere. We saw many deer, and there were birds of all kinds. Wild javelinas roamed around, and we were told to beware the black bears. In the middle of the night I went outside our room, and for real, thought I saw a chupacabra! (probably a raccoon, though) 🙂 Then, at one point we had to follow the road crew, and weren’t allowed to pass. The sign on the truck says ‘pilot car – follow me’.

  1. Chupacabra, shut your face! Some of us don’t even wanna think about that! lol

    Friends of mine just did some light hiking in the Smokeys and saw a bear cub. They left. Ate some pancakes in the city 😉

    • Hey, Joey! Yeah, I don’t know what animal I saw roaming on the sidewalk across the way from our room there at Indian Lodge, because it was dark. It had glowing eyes, though. When it came down the steps getting closer, I went back inside. I did take a couple of pictures, but they are not very good, being in the dark and all. I just love thinking it was a chupacabra! haha… I don’t blame your friends for leaving the area of bears. I hear they can be unpredictable, especially around campers and hikers.
