Hey, I'm Cynta!
Terlingua, Texas, United States · Member since March 2012

I am a confirmed desert rat. I became a rafting/hiking/sea kayak/naturalist guide in 1986 and have worked in as many places as I could, mostly in the Desert Southwest and Central America. I have a master's degree in 4 earth sciences (just one degree, not four) (archeology, geology, paleontology and climate) so I'm a nerd and love to check out every little thing. I love to cook. I walk my dogs 3 miles a day. I am half Cuban and live close to Mexico on purpose: I buy half my food there and make forays deep into the country whenever possible. I am the historian of the Terlingua Ghost Town: I can give tours of the mine and ruins here for a small donation. I have well worn hiking boots and 3 different kinds of boats and will take the day off to play in Big Bend National Park or on the Rio Grande River whenever possible. I love where I live and shared it for years as a (website hidden) host. Come stay.
