About 2 -3 miles from town is the Davis Mountain State Park where we are staying.  The place is beautiful, located in the Davis Mountains of West Texas.  This park more than made up for last night’s site, quiet, full hook-ups and gorgeous surroundings.  Build in the 1930’s by the CCC with trails running up through the mountains with spectacular views.
