The town of Terlingua, Texas is billed as a ghost town, which is amusing because there are all sorts of random structures serving as homes, as well as numerous artist studios, and apparently the Chili Cook Off Capital of the World!
As with Boquillas, this was a mining town where the mines closed long ago, leaving numerous structures to fall into disrepair.
No clue why there is a stake through a cactus.
Newer buildings are scattered throughout the ruins.
The Terlingua Cemetery is quite interesting as well. Next time you find yourself in the area stop by for some interesting sights, people, and some chili.
