From the intersection of Farm-to-Market Road 170 and Texas 118, travelers can either head southeast into Big Bend National Park or turn west for a different adventure. A short jaunt along FM 170 and a turn onto Ghost Town Road leads to the Terlingua Cemetery, which hosts a Day of the Dead celebration on November 2, 2013. The Terlingua chili cook-off championships are the same weekend this year.
