Salt of the earth
Hidalgo County is home to one of the only salt lakes in the state of Texas. La Sal Del Rey (aka King’s Salt) sits atop an estimated four million tons of salt and is ten times saltier than the ocean. The surrounding Tamaulipan thornscrub and grasslands is home to plenty of hiking and wildlife; the property will soon be open to various forms of hunting.
After some outdoor activities, YOLO TX migrates over to McAllen for some authentic Mexican cuisine at Suerte Bar & Grill.
