One of our favorites!

One of our very favorite photographs of early life in Van Horn from the collection of the Clark Hotel Museum, this image of the R.P. Bean Ranch.  You can drive north from Van Horn about 10 miles and still see the landscape as it is shown here.  In fact, we included this photo and a current view on our heritage cycling route (also good for driving and motorcycling), the "El Capitan to El Capitan Heritage Bike Route," here.  The route travels Hwy 54 from the historic Hotel El Capitan to the foot of the Guadalupe Mountains National Park.

Click on the photo for a closer view, so you can see the cowboys on horseback! 

Click here to see the view today!  Or better yet, drive or ride the route!
