Starr County Highpoint Trip Report

five areas near Viboras

Date: January 2004
Author: Scott Surgent


Four areas are bunched together on "El Macho" Ranch, with a fifth way off by itself near the county's northern border. We spoke to the caretaker, an elderly Mexican gentleman who spoke no English. My Spanish was barely good enough to glean that no one could go on and he could not give permission. From where we parked it would have been a fairly easy walk of about 4 miles round-trip along ranch roads to the 4 areas. No comment on the outlying fifth area; we did not scout it.
