We woke up early on Saturday morning and headed towards Big Bend. On the way we stopped in Terlingua to pick up our JEEP! This was part 2 of the husband's bday gift, but this part was not a surprise. He has wanted a Jeep since forever, so we thought it would be fun to rent one for the day. Needless to say, it was love at first sight for him.
Since we got to the park early, we decided to go to the Hot Springs first, in hopes that it would not be busy. We were in luck. We had the entire "pool" to ourselves! Much better then arriving at the pool to find about 20 middle-aged men in it like last time...
The Holland Hotel at dusk
We had dinner at a place called Reata. The food was ok, and the restaurant had a neat interior, but we were not overly impressed. The food was kinda overpriced for what we got. We both wished we had gone back to the Saddle Club! After dinner we headed back to the Holland Hotel to get our free drinks in the lounge. Another reason why I love that hotel! Before leaving on Sunday, we checked out Murphy Street. It is a cute little area, but there is not much there. We would have gone into the Murphy St. Raspa Co., but it was not open yet.

Overall, we had another great trip to Alpine/Big Bend. I am so glad we got to go back a second time!
