Hueco Tanks State Park (near EPT)

That lizard looks huge. I thought it was an iguana or something! I only remember tiny lizards!

Oh, I never saw the drawings at hueco tanks. I must have been drunk or something ;)

Hi Sheryl,

I agree... that was one unusual lizard! I had never seen one like that before (the coloring). He wasn't as big as an iguana though... he was much smaller, but not as small as the tiny lizards.

Hope you're having a great time in P-town!

The flowers and the stones and yes the lizard, all of it, beautiful. Mesmerizing.

Suzanne, thanks for checking out the photos. I wish I'd written something about the hike, which was really amazing. It's a special place.

And Sheryl, I forgot to mention that I've heard that HT used to be a party place back in the day, so that's not unusual that you didn't see the pictographs :). Also, the pictographs are really something else... they are likely over a thousand years old from the Jornada Mogollon culture, with more recent ones (hundreds of years old) from other tribes. I'm amazed the colors have lasted as long as they have.
