The space
Within the Chihuahuan Desert region surrounded by a ring of mountains nestles Alpine, Texas.We are close to Big Bend National Park, Big Bend Ranch State Park, the Rio Grande, the Chihuahuan Desert Institute and McDonald Observatory with its star parties and exhibits, and many artists and galleries in Alpine, Marathon, Marfa, & Terlingua as well as the Museum of the Big Bend in Alpine. There are more than 10 Alpine Wall Murals to view as you walk around Alpine. There are also various Alpine events, hiking,scenic drives, bird and wildlife watching, mountain biking, jeep tours, horseback riding, rafting, and golf courses. Alpine has a music scene you can investigate often while dining or take out at one of the restaurants here in Alpine. Balmorhea Spring and pool is wonderful in season, and the Chinati Hot Springs throughout the year.

Sandra and Richard have traveled to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and many of the states in the USA. Richard has been to Cuba. And in the mid eighties we spent 8 months in Mexico with short trips there and then visited Belize and Guatamala. Sandra also spent 5 months in her Little Guy Teardrop traveling with her cat in Texas. So we love a good adventure then and now. If we are'nt traveling we love to host guests who are.
