What is so special about Terlingua, Texas???
is a special place, because of its deserts, its mountains, its views. The name is
famed for quite a number of reasons, not due to just one specific event. Thousands make the Fall annual week-
long Terlingua Chili Cookoff, others enjoy the peaceful, escape from the rat-race , the inspiring landscapes,
or to study the rich geology, archaeology and paleontology in the mountainous and desert land forms. Those who
live in Terlingua take pride to call this their home, and eager to see the arts and entertainment culture grow among this
small population in a vast territory.
Where are the borders of the terlingua city limits? Fictionally, they begin within the National
Park border and the entrance to the National Park, around Dawson Creek, Southeast of Study Butte;
Then it extends all the way to the Rio Grande at Lajitas, and a little bit into Mexico, picking
up Paso Lajitas;
North to the Aqua Fria area;
And then East all the way to Terlingua Ranch Headquarters.
Encompassing all the communites from
Study Butte, Bee Mountain, Terlingua Creek,
the little 248 community, Ghost Town, Paso Lajitas (historic Comanche and Apache
crossing of the Rio Grande), Fulcher Ranch,
and the many Terlingua Ranch communites virtually encompassing
or surrounding all these areas.
For fact, Terlingua has no real borders. Although she has had her name on, or near all
of the above areas during the past 100 + years, she still remains proudly UNINCORPORATED!
Pet Warning: Climate in the Fall, Winter, and early Spring in
the heart of the Big Bend are usually wonderful for tourists, residents and pets, but please don't leave your
pets in cars, with windows even partially rolled up.
