Hueco Tanks State Park

We had one more opportunity to stay in a state park in Texas before entering New Mexico and Hueco Tanks was our destination.

Hueco Tanks is not your ordinary state park. Located not too far from El Paso, the view is amazingly beautiful. The landforms and mountain ranges are just breathtaking. This particular park has some sacred qualities as well and the park rangers make sure to give you guidelines as you enter the park. In fact, we were required to watch a 15 minute video regarding the sacredness of the park and some of the important things to be aware of while staying there. Once we found our site, we were in awe with all the beauty surrounding us. Lots of time rock climbing and exploring the area. It was one of those places that you just don’t want to leave.

Some of the pictographs were covered in graffiti, which is one of the reasons why there are strict guidelines now about visiting the sites

The visit to Hueco Tanks was a time to connect and just enjoy being together in a beautiful, amazing place. Moments such as these are just so precious to us. This is why we do what we do.

Beauty and Blessing Awaits.
