Yeah, there definitely is something there in West Texas that draws us back continually. We have herped various locations in Nevada, Northern and Southern California, New Mexico, and Arizona, but no other place has the "mystique", for want of a better term, than that provided by the Trans-Pecos region. We've caught 11 alterna in ten trips - a little better than one on average per week in the area. However, even on those trips when we did not personally find a grayband, we simply loved the process of getting out there, firing up the lights and searching. For a brief period of time we leave behind all thoughts of our livelihoods and just enjoy the scenery, the flora, and the fauna of an area that has an almost primeval beauty and literally comes alive when the sun goes down.
