Under a star-spangled sky, do you want to spend a night in a cabin with hot springs?
In such state, there is a fantastic inn.
It is three hours’ drive from El Paso.
Donald Judd, called Father of Minimal Art reformed a former military base and established the museum, Chinati Foundation.
Only One Lodge in the Desert
Additional two hours’ drive is necessary to get to the pretty inn.
Today I would stay in a room named “El Corazon” with a private bath.
Please look twice before the reservation because some rooms do not have private baths and the price differs.
Welcoming by barefaced cat
A cute cat welcomed me to the room; however, he began to sleep on the bed as if he owned the place.
Leaving him lay, I went to the private bath pertaining to the cabin.
The beautiful yellow bath room had an ordinary bath tub.
There were candles and I could enjoy the space all my own.
Unfortunately, the water input was not enough and I felt a little bit tepid.
I also had to be careful about the water discharge, because the water could overflow if I continued to pour water the tub.
Under a star-spangled sky
There is only one open-air bath and you must bring bathing suits.
Since a good deal of spring was poured, I felt much hotter than the indoor bath.
The water hardly had particular taste and smell.
When I looked up, there was a sky full of stars.
I have been to many secluded hot springs, but here was the best place for enjoying stars.
At the only one inn in the desert, you can see the star-spangled sky.
