I’ve known Glenn and Heather for quite some time now, but for the past three years, they have allowed me to pull my trailer onto their land, and stay at their place. Even though I end up giving a monetary donation, they have never really asked for it. I try to contribute my time as what I would like to call “ranch hand” even though most of my time is spent either rock climbing, or taking photos. Glenn is a bit of a renaissance man. Makes anything from kneepads and dog collars, and builds anything from truck storage boxes to straw bale houses and yurts… It always reminds me of the old SNL skit with Paul Simon and Victoria Jackson where she smelted copper to make him a watch while they were stuck on a deserted island. “Oh that, I made it…” Heather is equally as great. Keeping Gleatherland (their ranch name) maintained, helping out with all of the work, and super strong on the rocks easily bagging really hard hueco lines every season. During a recent stay, they asked me to grab a couple of head shots of them for their use, which I was happy to do.

If you are planning to head out to Hueco anytime soon, and you are looking for something quieter, and away from the crowds, Gleatherland is offering a couple of options of places to stay. They have The Bomber Inn (an old RV painted like a bomber) and The Mongoli Inn (314 sq ft yurt), both pictured below. Contact Heather Johnson via Facebook for more info:
