My husband Marty and I re-located to west Texas from Michigan. What a change! :o) We have adventured and experienced all that the area has to offer. Don't hesitate to ask us about exciting things to see and do. We love enjoying the amazing scenery. From the magnitude of wildlife to the wildflowers and cactus, there is a never ending list of things to enjoy in the Alpine area. We frequent Big Bend National Park and love to go on spur of the moment drives to see new things. I enjoy going for walks along our property and relaxing on the porch. We look forward to meeting you!
