On our way to Big Bend, we had to stop for lunch in the town of Marathon. The Gage Hotel is in the center of town and it's the only game in town if you're looking for a nice place to stay. They also have a small campground. The place is beautifully restored right down to the window screens which are copper or brass.

Big Bend National Park
As we were getting ready to break camp in Langtry, these guys stopped to say goodbye.
These are the rooms in the motel section of the Gage Hotel.
We did get to see the interior of one of the rooms but I didn't get a picture. The decor is done in a western style with cattle hides on the floor. It really gives you the feeling of being in a western town.
Oh look, some lovers sitting outside of the Gage Hotel.
