Texas conjures up the thoughts of cowboys, indians, cattle and criminals of the old west. Visiting Terlingua in the Big Bend region is no exception. The area is so rugged that major airlines have to fly into El Paso or Midland each about a 6 hour drive away. We were there competing in the annual World Championship Chili Cookoff and decided to take up residence at La Posada Milagro in the old Terlingua Ghost Town. We did not see any ghosts but the hotel was very unique. It was very rustic but in a good way. The buildings were constructed of native stone, shared bathrooms mostly and no TV or phones in the rooms. They have a great coffee shop that serves breakfast and lunch items (Burritos, tamales, meatloaf etc...). But mostly it was the great serce that will keep us going back. Ask for Mimi, the owner, or Noemi, who was so kind to us even giving us rides back and forth to the cookoff. Man, you gotta get some here!
