What happened to the American Dream ?
The struggle to hold onto the "American dream" has been lost for most in the small town of Pecos,
On a recent trip through the area, I was shocked and saddened by the shattered hopes reflected in the once
thriving businesses. I remember coming here with my father when i was a very young girl. He was a truck driver and hauled
Cantaloupes from Pecos to the market in San Antonio. Pecos was a fun place to be in the summer. The melons were the best you
could get ! To this day, when I am lucky to find a Pecos melon in our local store, I snatch it up, place it near my nose and
take a deep breath of its sweet aroma.
Once a bright and cheerful place, as reflected by some of the remaining colors
on the doors, it is now almost a ghost town.
This is an ongoing project, so check back for more pictures every once
in a while.
