      About 9 miles west of the resort town of Lajitas, keep an eye out to your left for Contrabando, an abandoned film set. One small adobe building "La Casita" is original but all the others were constructed to create a movie location used in a series of almost exclusively forgettable Westerns.

      If you go:
      It might not be authentic but the backdrop of the Big Bend countryside and the Rio Grande that flows nearby makes it a popular place to stop and take a few photographs.
