Day 21 Feb 1 El Paso to Fort Stockton
Share
clear

This was a short mileage day (222 miles) so we would have time to watch the Superbowl. Fort Stockton was closed on Sunday so we didn’t get to see it. It was built in 1858 to protect travelers on the trials from Indian raids. Closed during the Civil War it reopened in 1867 and remained open for 19 years until the “Indian Menace” was not longer a threat. Today’s photo was taken on a hike around the RV Park which is beside the interstate. The juxtaposition of signs makes it interesting. Fort Stockton is in the middle of what must be one of the most remote areas in the lower 48 states. Note the nearest town is 100 miles away.
