At a Glance
Come to see why this region was known as the last frontier. Learn about early Jumano, Comanche, and Apache Native Americans; and homesteaders; miners, ranchers, and farmers. Understand that Texas Rangers had their hands full dealing with outlaws, bandits, and border raids. From lowland desert ecosystems, to shrub lands, sky islands, and riparian zones, the Chihahuan Desert is where desert, mountains, and rivers converge as one. Take a trip across the border to Mexico to a remote village or to a bustling town. Realize that the city water and electric lines only run so far in this region, leaving most locals to live "off the grid". Finally take a moment to witness the vibrant sunrises and eternal sunsets. Contemplate the dark night skies, the Milky Way, as it brings us to silence. Come capture the essence of this region...or ... will it capture you?
