Having been to the Davis Mountains and Big Bend many, many times over the last 40 years, I am thrilled you are enjoying this awesome, rugged area. Welcome to all the weather changes, that is one of thrills of the western mountains.

At one time probably 20 years ago, we were a member of “The Nature Conservancy”. We totally believe in wanting to conserve the land from developers dividing the land into little “ranchetts”. However as we watched the Nature Conservancy buy up the land and then lock it up so almost no one can visit or see the land we discontinued our membership. We would join again in a heartbeat if the Nature Conservancy would provide a program where they would open up their properties to some sort of paid membership program where we and others could come visit for a fee for more than the limited amount of time you describe at The Davis Mountains Preserve. As it is they have locked up an area of 90,000 acres of what was a working ranch, not a wilderness area, so there is very little public visitation.

We hope you enjoy the remainder of your stay in the beautiful Davis Mountains.

If you haven't tried pogo.com they have some good games. My husband hates for me to download any of the online games but Pogo doesn't require downloads and they're good for a change. I've been playing bejeweled for years.....I don't like just sitting in front of the TV,...but also don't want to actually do anything productive so I play games;)
