The view of the Chisos mountains is about the best around. Front and center is Emory Peak, the highest point in the national park at 7800 ft. To the left of that is Casa Grande and to the right is the South Rim. Good hiking at Indian Head trail is a mile from my place and has amazing views, interesting rock formations, native American pictographs, etc. Trail is easy and suitable for hiking and mountain bikes.

Owner of Mel's Place, a 20 acre property with a unique off grid glamping cabin and primitive campground with amazing views of Big Bend National Park and located just a mile from amenities and five miles from the park. I enjoy camping, outdoor activities, live music, good food, time with friends around a campfire, and doing arts and crafts when nature inspires me. I'm a semi- retired landscape designer and vacation rental host. Having great life experiences is what I believe in and try to be grateful every day for the chance to do so. When friends visit Mel's Place they often say it feels special and that it has a great energy. I agree! I hope my airbnb guests feel the same and treat it as their own. Enjoy!
