Today, we made the trek to Big Bend National Park, destination, Rio Grande River.
On our way back from Big Bend, we stopped in Marathon, TX. It is home to the Gage Hotel designed by Henry Trost (as was The Paisano Hotel in Marfa) as a residence for rancher Alfred Gage. It is beautifully restored and has been expanded considerably. My mom and dad stayed there 21 years ago when they were traveling through Texas. www.gagehotel.com
Around the block from the Gage, we found a colorful combination greenhouse/bed and breakfast. www.evesgarden.org
So, if you are headed to Big Bend and not planning on camping, here you go!
