I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

So interesting! Lots to see there.

Very telling comment you make - "Too many interpretive signs with too much text..." Interesting perspective from the other side!

Always fun to learn the history of an area. Too much can be a turn off----we are such a busy society. LOL---Yawn! MB

I like that painting, not surprised to see a "sold" sign on it.
I look forward to the posts from Big Bend, I've heard good things about this park.

We visited Big Bend in 2010 and very much loved it. The mountains and the Rio Grande were two of our favorites. We did a "boomerang" (up and back) trip thru Santa Elena canyon...just beautiful!

I have to agree with Nina, there are way too many interpretative signs and not enough wonderfully engaging and passionate interpreters like you! I know parks in Canada are trying to draw more people to Parks however with the increase in multiculturism there needs to be more of the human interpreters rather than written(often only english) signs.
Great post Gaelyn and continue to do what you do so well.

My family goes to the San Antonio area every January and I have thought of meeting them there sometime. But the weather is often cold and rainy then. The history of Texas is very interesting.

Looks like a sweet little museum!

I'm with you on this one. Too much text makes one just browse through and not read everything. LOL. Like some folks blogs.

I like the fisrt little piece about how God made Bog Bend.

Looks like an interesting museum, Gaelyn. West Texas has a lot of history to offer.

I'm so sorry that I haven't checked in with your blog in such a long time! While at the museum, you were literally less than 100 feet from my office's front door. I work at the university (and incidentally, am a part-time student, too). I hope you enjoyed your stay in Alpine. Safe travels.
