We are so fortunate to live in a region that provides so many options to get outside and enjoy the surroundings just moments from our apartments in El Paso.


Here are some of our ‘favorite things to do in El Paso this fall’ courtesy of visitelpaso.com.


Hueco Tanks Birding Hike

September 16, 2017

Hueco Tanks State Park & Historic Site is visited by over 200+ different species of birds throughout the year, and this is your chance to see some of them! Whether you are a birder or just curious how to tell one bird from the other, this tour is for you.

Tours leave from the Park’s Interpretive Center at 7:30 AM every third Saturday of the month. Please give yourself enough time to check-in at the headquarters and prepare before the tour leaves, as restrooms are scarce while on the hike!

Things to bring: water, binoculars, camera, bird guide / ID book, good hiking shoes, and enthusiasm.  To reserve a spot on the tour, please call the Park Office.

Celebration of our Mountains – Prehistoric Trackways Discovery Site

September 16, 2017, 8 AM

Saturday, October 14, 2017, 9 AM

Saturday, November 18, 2017, 9 AM

With paleontologist, Colin Dunn, travel back 280 million years to the Early Permian, a time when this area was a tidal flat on the edge of a wide seaway. Learn about the creatures that lived on the coast and left numerous footprints and trackways in the muds and sands. From the mighty sail-backed Dimetrodon, to small insects and arachnids, tracks of all sizes have been preserved. This hike will take visitors up an arroyo to the first major site that these tracks were found and collected, the Discovery Site. Geology and paleontology of the area will be discussed.
