Let’s tour west Texas

Rolly Prager

Save the date for a nine-day bus tour of west Texas from March 29 to April 2.

The tour begins with a day in El Paso, where we’ll learn about the international culture along the Mexican border. The tour then continues with stops at Fort Dixon, a well-preserved historic frontier fort, and the Museum of Big Bend in Alpine. Minimalist art and mysterious lights will highlight a visit to Marfa.

The Lajitas Resort will be the gateway to Big Bend National Park where we will spend a day exploring this land of incredible diversity from canyons along the Rio Grande to the towering Chisnos Mountains. For an adventure of a different kind, we will tour the spectacular caves of Carlsbad Caverns National Park. The tour concludes with a night in Las Cruces.

The complete itinerary and pricing for the tour will be announced in early November. For priority reservations, join the Friends of SaddleBrooke Libraries by visiting
