I wanted to make sure I didn't miss to oppertunity to stop and take pictures in Tumco. For anyone who is reading this I will also be stoping in Cuthbert TX, Tuleta TX (near Beeville TX), and if I have time on my way back to California I will be stopping in Pumpville TX. Thanks again Kathy.

    : One of my gt books A GUIDE TO WESTERN
    : GT'S reads "from Yuma, go west across the river on US80. At 9.1 miles is dirt road exiting north Take this 3.9 miles to Ogilby on railroad tracks. Cross these, take rough dirt road 6.6 miles to Tumco".
    : In California from I-8, take CA 34 north to Ogilby
    : then continue as shown above.
