Have you ever wondered what it would have been like growing up in the Wild West of El Paso? Where would our water come from? How did you keep your food from rotting? Come on out to Hueco Tanks and meet Irma Sanchez-Escontrias, a descendant of Silvario & Pilar Escontrias. Silvario and Pilar owned and ranched the property that would eventually become Hueco Tanks, and were influential members of the El Paso community.
