 The Pinto Experience

Regarding Charles Lohrmann’s story on Pinto Canyon Road [February]: Fantastic drive! We discovered this gem of a road last year. We went unprepared with only one spare and no supplies except a cooler full of sodas and water, but we survived! No blown tires and those drinks were much appreciated! It was hot when we got to Chinati Springs, and that was the ambient temperature, not the springs. We highly recommend this drive from either direction (we went north to south), but not in wet weather … it might get too interesting then.

Near the end of Pinto Canyon Road we picked up a stranded English tourist with several flat tires!

Luling To-Do’s

We recently visited the Central Texas Oil Patch Museum in Luling. For a small town such as Luling, it is a fantastic museum. There are also other interesting things to do and places to visit while there: Take an audio tour at Zedler Mill, or grab a delicious barbecue sandwich at Luling Bar-B-Que.
