Van Horn is located at the intersection of hwy. 90 and interstate 10 in the SW corner of Culberson County. It is 100 miles NW of Alpine. Hwy. 54 runs north toward the Guadalupe Mountains National Park.
Van Horn is the only town of any size in the county.
There are several motels, several restaurants and a couple truck stops. Gas and food are available all night.
I like Van Horn. The town is not much to look at, but the people are great. There may not be much chance for finding alterna in the area, but there are numerous other interesting herps in the area. I once found eleven species of snakes in three hours.
