We haven't stayed in too many Texas State Parks over the years but we were glad to find this one.
The entrance provided for easy access off I-10 was a well designed with the ranch sign over the road.
He also said the State Park had to sift through potential guests wanting to stay in the campground because a lot of the oil workers ask to stay at the park. Instead, many workers end up staying in over-priced RV parks that have sprung up all over for miles around.
One thing we will remember about Monahans is the oil boom that IS occurring in the area. Miles and miles of oil related businesses near Odessa, Midland and Monahans as well as all the 'pump jacks' (what we just called oil wells) dotting the horizon.
Turns out Mr. T. is from Roswell NM and we are within a few years age-wise. I asked if he knew the legendary LPGA golfer Nancy Lopez who was from NM. He said, "Believe it or not, my Father-In-Law was best friends with Nancy Lopez' father". How about that?
We moved on and found our campsite in the midst of the mounds of sand dunes. What an anomoly in the middle of the country side.
And so was the sunrise next morning from our site.
