Hueco Tanks State Park

I always have wanted to go to this park and now was our chance. And this is what we saw.

I always try to take a photo of the entrance signs to park, not sure why but I do. 😉

Lots people come here to climb the rocks. As we later saw, the climbers had a thick pad that they used for safety just in case they fell.

First, critter at the park was this Western Pygmy-Blue (Brephidium exile)! It is a very tiny butterfly.

This trail was near the ranch house where they showed all visitors a film to show you the do and don’t-s for the park.

The rocks were awesome!

This park is known for its pictographs!

Some have faded.

A green horse!

A lot of hummingbirds were visiting the Trans-Pecos Morning-glory (Ipomoea cristulata)! However, I never managed to get a shot of that. I will post more on the park tomorrow.

Keep looking!

The more you know, the more you see and the more you see, the more you know.


  1. Did you have to wait for a while to enter? When we visited there was a strict visitor quota. We had to wait 1.5 hours until enough other visitors left so we could enter. It was not a parking issue; they only wanted so many people in the park at any one time.

    1. I guess we were lucky because there was not that many people there. And went two different days. Guess that is why they counted us going in and out for the quota. No waiting either day.
