Pictures from El Paso, Texas

At Hueco Tanks State Park, Texas, US

After driving from Florida to El Paso in Texas, I gained some confidence in myself, my car and my plan. Prior to this I wasn’t sure so I didn’t book any campgrounds in the national parks. While staying for a week in an extended stay hotel in El Paso I spent lots of time online booking as well as hiking and sightseeing in the El Paso area. The pictures below were taken by my phone.
