The Chisos Mountains (meaning "ghosts" in Apache) are sacred to Native Americans living in the region because that is where the gods lived. And, well they should have selected a place -- beautiful, full of independently thinking men and women, and with miles of walking trails overlooking unparalleled scenes of valleys below.

Stayed in the Chisos Mtn Lodge. VERY nice facilities for a National Park. Rooms comfortable and CLEAN! The restaurant does a really good job considering they are 100 miles away from anything! ALL the staff is friendly, helpful, CHEERFUL!

Very beautiful and quiet. Not even a long drive to go up to the top, and I suggest eating at the lodge up there as well.

We drove in from Presidio along the Rio Grande. It was 108 degrees in the valley, but 85 up by the Chisos Mountain lodge. The views were stunning. It was like an oasis high above the desert. Beautiful place and very unexpected!

There was a 20-30% chance of rain in forecast for that area and it did rain. Thank goodness for the rainfly! It was very windy and a cool (for Texas) mid 70s at... More
