Some like it hot, and some not. In El Paso, the summers are hot, the winters are short and cold, and it is dry and mostly clear all year.

The county features a vast contrast in its landscape, so you can follow the sun to the desert land of Franklin Mountains State Park or enjoy lake life in the wetlands and lake communities of Rio Bosque Park and Ascarate Lake.
The area offers a variety of outdoor playgrounds, within miles of your new getaway. Visit Franklin Mountains State Park or Heuco Tanks State Park for great hiking, biking, rock climbing and bird watching. Visit for the day or camp overnight while you look for geocaches, bird (and nature) watch, or bring a picnic. Ascarate Park is the largest public-use recreational park in El Paso County with picnicking, fishing, swimming (a pool and a lake), sports fields and a 280 acre golf course. You can even hire a tour guide or attend a riding clinic to get the lay of the land. Just over the border in New Mexico, lies the rugged mountain range of the Organ Mountains.
For some local culture, check out the El Paso Arts Association or the Art galleries at the Chamizal National Memorial, commemorating the peaceful settling of the Chamizal border dispute and featuring the work of local painters and artists. Walk the historic Mission Trail in El Paso and see local churches built between the 1600 and 1700'S. Enjoy everything from film festivals to local wineries, and even ghost tours.
With its classic Western geography, the area of El Paso is in the Chihuahuan Desert of extreme western Texas, along the Rio Grande River. It adjoins both the state of New Mexico and the country of Mexico. Live Oaks and Mondell Pine trees thrive in this desert environment, and honey mesquite and cottonwood are native to the area. Remember the Alamo? Alamo is actually Spanish for cottonwood. The rustic terrain of the area is exactly what you'll find as you travel down the dirt road to your new property.
Be a pioneer and claim your own lil' bit o' Texas land. The rustic dirt road is yet to be named so get creative. Water would be a well, water haul and holding tank or something similar. Sewer would be septic and power by solar, wind or generator, Cellular phone service is available; can you hear me now? Get packing.
