Visiting Big Bend Country

El Paso, Texas' western most city - gateway to the desert frontier of West Texas. The Chihuahuan desert geography dominates the region, from Del Rio in the South through Midland and Odessa. The desert gives way to the plains of Lubbock and Amarillo in the north. Outside El Paso the Guadalupe Mountains National Park is home to the highest peak in Texas. Big Bend National Park in the south of the region is Texas' first National Park. The heritage of West Texas is filled with familiar names and characters of the Wild West frontier days. The courtroom of Judge Roy Bean is in Langtry and remnants of Fort Bliss and Fort Stockton remain as monuments to the frontier heritage of West Texas.
