Yesterday we visited one of the best kept secrets in the region, the Gage Gardens, across the railroad tracks from the Gage Hotel in Marathon. Open to hotel guests and the general public, the gardens are a lovely place to stroll, rest, reflect and enjoy. The garden is 26 acres, has a quarter mile jogging/walking track, and is also the source of produce for the hotel's restaurant. More information and photos are here.
When we were there yesterday, a huge flock of Yellow-Headed Blackbirds could be seen! (To get closer, double-click on each photo!) For more information on birding in the region, visit: www.texasmountaintrail.com/bird
The Gage Hotel is one of our best historic hotels in the region, and it is also cycle-friendly! To learn more, visit:
