One of our favorite places, Jim.  Absolutely fantastic.  The best time to go 
is about now until the end of April - after that it gets hideously hot.  We 
were there once in May and the temps were like  112 degrees.  The wildflowers in 
early March, 2000 were incredible.  I've heard they were less good the 
following year because of drought conditions.  It's hard to get to - sorta you can't 
get there from here.  We have driven a couple of times.  Last time we flew in 
to Midland and drove a rented car from there.  The Gage Hotel in Marathon is 
the place to stop on the way in - but be sure to stay in the new part.  Beds 
are uncomfortable in both, but the ambience is great, and so is the food.  
Really a special sort of place  for both wildflowers and birds - and scenery - and 
just about anything else.  I hope you go and enjoy it as much as we have.
