If you like the remote feel of Bandera, head farther west on Highway 16 to Medina, a quiet treasure along the namesake river. Apple growing became a large part of this tiny town's industry in the late 1980s thanks to pioneer farmer Baxter Adams, who started the town's first apple orchard. Today A few shops sell sundry gifts and homemade apple jellies and spreads, and the Old Timer gas station at the junction of Ranch Road 337 is a good place for catching local gossip at an old picnic table.
