Land Lovers:  There are picnic areas and hiking trails open to the public.  If you’re an early riser, you might get a chance to have some coffee with the park ranger or go on a guided bird walk.  In town is Del Rio’s well known Val Verde Winery.  The winery invites you to visit them and enjoy a complimentary tour and tasting. For More information about local events please contact the Del Rio Chamber of Commerce. (provide a link to the winery, and chamber of commerce)

Nature watchers:  You’re in luck:  The serenity and peacefulness of Rough Canyon provides homes to a variety of wildlife.  You can take a hike to spot these animals or admire the white tailed deer that are easily summoned at the sound of a tin can with dried corn inside from your cabin’s deck.  Within minutes you will have wildlife about 40 feet from your deck for your viewing pleasure.  There is a nice population of white tailed deer, quail and rabbits that make their home at Ruthies.  In addition to the deer, the area has several non- native species including Aoudad sheep, Mouflan Sheep and Black Buck.  There is also a wide variety of birds so bring your binoculars.
