Law West Of The Pecos

            Langtry, Texas is known as the long ago home of Judge Roy Bean.

He established himself as Justice Of The Peace West of the Pecos River and handed out his own brand of law and order.

This is the original Jersey Lilly Saloon, where the eccentric Judge handed out both hard liquor and harsh justice.

Our friends, Keith and Marsha Mann, live in Langtry and have recently opened a trading post and rest stop for weary travelers.

Travelers stay in this trailer.  It has all the comforts of home.  A nice bed, shower, air conditioning, and kitchen with a well stocked refrigerator.  It is very popular with bicyclers along this route.  There are also RV hookups for those that need a place to stay for the night.

You can stay here for free if you putter around and help Keith fix up a few things.

This is the old ranch house Keith and Marsha fixed up and now live in.

              It's right down the road from the Trading Post and they have RV hookups here also.

Keith took us on a 4X4 ride high on a canyon ridge and pointed to Mexico across the Rio Grande.
