      Drive Texas State Highway 54 north from Van Horn to the Guadalupe Mountains National Park and you won't come across a single intersection along its entire 55-mile length. Just about the only sign of human habitation you'll come across is the Figure 2 Ranch, also known as Daugherty after founder James Monroe Daugherty. The ranch sits at the base of the imposing Sierra Diablo Mountains, location of a decisive battle between Texas Rangers and Chief Victorio's Apache Indians.

      If you go:
      The Sierra Diablo Mountains - some 950 million years old - form the dramatic western backdrop to a significant proportion of the drive. Public access to the Sierra Diablo Wildlife Management Area is by appointment only.
