The Campground recommended Alicia’s for breakfast burritos. Camille sent me over.
The burritos were great. I had a sausage, egg & potato and got Camille a bacon and egg. Hers was good. Mine was interesting. I went back the next day for a “trash can”.
Had an interesting chat with a biologist for the state of Texas as we waited for our burritos.
The tourist attractions in and around Alpine are:
- The Museum of the Big Bend located on the campus of Sul Ross State University, billed as the smallest college in Texas. Big Bend National Park is 110 miles south of Alpine.
- Fort Davis National Historic Park
- McDonald Observatory
- The Mystery Lights of Marfa
We decided our first stop would be the Apache Trading Post who advertised a video on the Marfa Lights. The trading post was very nice, the video was interesting. The Marfa lights were first seen in 1883. They appear “almost every night.” Origin and cause unknown.
Then we went downtown and visited all the little shops. Saw this downtown.
That concluded our tourism activities for the day.
