Why You Should Visit Terlingua, Texas

Terlingua is probably the most underrated town in West Texas. The self-proclaimed “ghost town” is nestled between Big Bend National Park and Big Bend State Park, well removed from society. The closest town of any decent size is Presidio (pop. 4,426), nearly a two-hour drive away, meaning residents in Terlingua are generally left to their own devices.

Where is Horseshoe Bend?

Horseshoe Bend is a famous horseshoe-shaped meander in the Colorado River near Page, Arizona. After driving 10 minutes south from Page, Arizona, you’ll see a dirt road between mileposts 544 & 545 on the west side of Highway 89. There is a small dirt parking lot and the Horseshoe Bend lookout can be accessed by walking a relatively flat 3/4 miles (~1.2kms) each way.
