David and I, along with 28 other climbers, went to Hueco Tanks State Park for a long weekend to go rock climbing. It was so fun! For those of you who have not been to Hueco Tanks, it is a huge formation of rocks 32 miles outside of El Paso. It is considered by many Native Americans to be a spiritual place, with hundreds of pictographs painted on rocks throughout the park. It just so happens that Hueco Tanks is one of the best bouldering areas in the U.S., some say, the world. With a little over 20 hours of driving for just a 4-day trip, we made the most of it. We climbed on some beautiful rock, spent evenings by the fire chatting with new and old friends, and breathing in the crisp desert air. Road trips like these reset my soul, and continually make me appreciate the natural world around us.
