Wide Open Spaces
Head to this 30,000-acre West Texas ranch to see the buffalo really roam—not to mention elk, javelinas, and bobcats. Three restored 1800s adobe forts house 22 guestrooms with hacienda-style furnishings, Mexican antiques and colorful hand-stitched bed throws. Explore the rugged Chinati and Ciénago Mountain expanse on horseback or Humvee tours, keeping a look out for ghost town remains and Native American rock art. Nighttime brings on the stars, so snag a 12-inch Meade telescope and study vivid constellations with a guide at your side. And Birders, don’t forget your binoculars: over 500 species of migratory and year-round birds have been spotted in this region, including roadrunners and bald eagles.
