The Entrancing State Park In Texas You Never Knew Existed
We talk a lot about Big Bend, Palo Duro Canyon, and the other monumental parks in West Texas. One place that doesn’t get nearly enough attention is Hueco Tanks near El Paso. It has a mystical air about it that can’t be explicitly described but rather must be experienced to be fully understood. You’ve probably never even heard of this state park, but that doesn’t make it any less worthy of a visit.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Have you ever been to Hueco Tanks? If so, how neat were the pictographs on the walls? What was your favorite thing about the park?
