Re: Big Bend after Christmas

He wanted (and we gave him) a celebration on the day of his funeral. In typical Dr. Doug fashion he was literally late to his own funeral. His ashes arrived in Terlingua about four hours after the service. So the urn went to the porch and horseshoe pits for the remainder of the party.

Only in Terlingua!

I didn’t know this gentleman, but 63 is too young to die.

As my friend Dail says “birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live!” He’s 84. And still riding. He’s a good role model.

Re: Big Bend after Christmas

There are hot springs in the National Park. A smart traveler would bring a swimsuit so they could enjoy the springs. Just sayin.
