Steep Hill at the RV Park in Lajitas

Next to the part of the RV park we stayed at in Lajitas, TX were a couple of big hills on the way to the tenting area.

This one was pretty steep and very narrow at the top. It seemed to be made up of only dried mud, so I guess it will wash away some day. It was just barely wide enough to walk on, but very crumbly so I didn’t go far.

While staying at the RV Park in Lajitas, TX we drove down the scenic Highway 170 a couple times. After seeing several horses on the Mexican side of the border, we crested one of the larger mountain passes on the road and started down to this view on the shoulder.

Mexico is to the left.

The view was reminiscent of the Headwaters of the Rio Grande I stopped at along a highway in Colorado, seen below.
