Las Casitas at Far Flung Outdoor Center--a Texas Mountain Trail Cycle-Friendly Accommodation

Texas Mountain Trail has a list of cycle-friendly hotels, casitas, motels, cabins and historic motor courts that are happy to work with cyclists...as well as all other kinds of travelers to provide a great stay in our region.

The folks at Far Flung Outdoor Center of Terlingua (an outfitter offering river tours, jeep tours, and other adventures in the Big Bend region) have some lovely little casitas close to the entrance of Big Bend National Park. 

From Far Flung:

"We are cycle-friendly and happy to host riders who want to experience the vastness of Big Bend National Park and the surrounding area.  Our casitas are sized to accommodate secure bike parking either inside or on the casita porch.  Each casita has a kitchenette with coffee maker, refrigerator, microwave, sink and a complete supply of dishes, cups and silverware.  Las Casitas are located two miles from the west entrance to Big Bend National Park."

The first thing that caught my eye on my blog following feed is "La Casitas". I just finished a piece on my blog about a city in the center of Dänemark where there is a Mexican Restaurant with classic Mexican decor and authenitic food recipes and flavourings that you'd swear you were in the southwest if not actually in Mexico itself.

The restaurant is simply "La Casitas" and it was my second visit there this summer 2012 from summer of 2007. When I asked the cook/owner where she picked up her original styles she said she lived in San Antonio Texas for 15 years. Go figure!

I can imagine from your photos how quiet and pleasant such bike rides would be in that part of the country. Keep posting these short stories. I'm homesick for the southwest.
