Hueco Tanks State Park

“Hueco Tanks State Park"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

During my trip to Texas, my daughter wanted to take me to several places she had been to before and knew I would like. She took us to Hueco Tanks State Park in El Paso to hike the large rock formations there.

Huecos (“whey-coes”) are indentions in the rocks that collect rainwater and have sustained life for humans, wildlife, plants and trees. 

The Jornada Mogollon people inhabited the area and left many neat images painted on the rocks. There are an estimated 5000 images painted on the rocks. 

Location: El Paso, Texas
