McDonald Observatory

McDonald Observatory and the Davis Mountains

Central West Texas

I ended my trip with a couple of days in the Davis Mountains in the central part of west Texas. It was a few hours drive from the Rio Grande to the town of Fort Davis, where I stayed at the historic Hotel Limpia on December 30. The next morning I drove to the David Observatory, 13 miles west, for a tour. I then set up camp in the Davis Mountains State Park for New Year's Eve. It got down into the teens this last night in my tent.
