Can you spot the critters?
If you're escaping city life by visiting Far West Texas, sometimes it takes a little while to "settle in" and slow down enough to see all that is out here. As you drive, or hike, or cycle through the Texas Mountains it is great fun to remember (and then look for) the wildlife that lives on the land. From time to time you'll see mule deer or pronghorn antelope, or roadrunners or jackrabbits, or javelina. Some of our mountains are home to bighorn sheep and mountain lions and bobcat. Here's a prime example of what can be seen if you take a close look--can you see the javelinas on the hill? They're up there! Taken on the Scenic Loop southwest of Fort Davis.
