The Crow’s Nest at Ft. Davis

Our drive on Tuesday was not too long as we had a destination at the Crow’s Nest on the Medley Ranch.  http://www.crowsnestranch.com/history.htm  About 30 years ago the Leader had a deer lease on this ranch and they have opened part of it to RV travelers and have a few cabins as well.  So we carefully trekked down a short graded road and over two cattle guards into a special place.  As we pulled in we saw several mule deer through the trees. We selected a site and set up under the watchful eyes of more deer.  Needless to say the girls were really anxious to get out and about.  Our spot had several nice trees and a stone patio right out our door.  This was to be our home for the next 4 days so we set up the chairs and TV outside as well as opened up the inside to the breeze.  The best part about this is it is so quiet and the skies are so dark at night you can see a million stars. We are at an elevation of about 5800 ft here so stays cool. There is only one other rig here and they are the hosts.  He is a former pilot and she is an artist and paints West Texas landscapes, a few of her works are in the Big Bend Museum at Sul Ross State University in Alpine. More about that later!
