Van Horn, Texas

Earlier this week we left Deming and stopped in El Paso to get our annual Texas Vehicle Inspection Certificates before continuing to Van Horn, which is a really small town on I10.
Main Street

Along the way we lost an hour as Van Horn is on central time, which was kinda nice as it stayed light around 8.30 p.m.

We had dinner at Chuy’s a Mexican/American restaurant on Broadway which has earned a place in the Madden Haul of Fame.  John Madden is an American football broadcaster who won’t fly, so he spends a lot of time criss-crossing the country by bus and this is one of his favourite restaurants.   I had hoped to try the tequila lime pie, but sadly they didn’t have any, oh well maybe next time.  

Next morning, because it was so late we actually saw the sunrise over the mountains from our spot at the KOA and yes it really was that colour, I haven’t been playing with photoshop.

We’ve only ever stayed overnight in Van Horn, but next time we pass this way I wouldn’t mind staying a little longer and visiting the historic El Capitan hotel, taking Red Ranch Tour and maybe finding the Lobo Valley petroglyphs. 

Have fun, we are!
