off road driving
Friday, March 08, 2013

This short drive takes you to an early ranching effort in the Big Bend. Remnants of stock pens, a water well and trough still exist at this site.

The first couple of miles off the main highway can be driven with a passenger car. However, the road gets narrow and rocky as you go into the Paint Gap. You will get desert striping (scratches) on the last mile and a half.
