Over Thanksgiving I decided to forgo football and over-eating to go to the desert and climb in Hueco Tanks, TX. Paul and I packed up the Prius and drove down, stopping on the way at the Hard Rock Casino to eat lunch and gamble.
Let me just put it out there, I don’t like camping on a climbing trip. I like camping but only for about two days. Any longer and I feel achy, tired, dirty, and just plain gross. Thus I was relieved when we pulled into the Hueco Hacienda. ( http://www.huecohacienda.com/) The Hacienda is cush. The rooms are as comfortable as any hotel. And the beds, woah, prepare to get the best sleep of your life. There is a full kitchen, with pots, pans, dishes, and Tupperware for guest use. Mary, one of the proprietors of the Hacienda, had North reservations for guests already set-up. She and her husband Rocco even made an amazing Thanksgiving dinner for us. We didn’t have to forgo the over-eating after all.
