There is a nice newly remodeled Visitors Center at the old train station, I picked up some information about the town and area. I stopped at a nearby tire center to make sure my tires had the correct air pressure. I have a compressor that is supposed to be heavy duty for RV tires, but it does not work very fast. I will keep it for emergencies.

I drove through the parking lot for the "Fort", but it didn't look to interesting, so I did not stop.

After 2 days at Balmorhea State Park, I went to Pecos.
Pecos Train Station, near the Museum
First thing in Pecos, I picked up my mail and thankfully my Texas Drivers License was in the package. I walked around the downtown area and passed by the museum, but did not go inside, they had some nice exhibits outside in a small park, so I just walked through that area. I stopped at the Walmart in Pecos, it is very small and does not have any fresh grocery items.
I stayed 2 nights at the Escapees RV Park in Pecos. It's nothing fancy, but I needed to do laundry and get caught up on paperwork, so it worked out great. There are nice long pull-thru sites near the front, with a covered patio and picnic table between sites. And these sites were very close to the laundry building and office. I think most of the other sites are rented to workers in the area, but it was all kept very neat and clean and was very quiet.
My Sprint Wi-Fi did not work very well at this park. So, I paid the $3.00 fee to hook up to the Escapees "Tengo Internet" provider.
The first day in Pecos, the temperature got up to 90* and then cooled down, the evening temps were perfect for sitting outside watching the moon. The second day was windy and cold. The weather here has been real crazy.
