Have any of you ever been to West Texas? I had this preconceived notion that anything west of San Antonio was ugly and barren. Boy was I wrong! We drove through West Texas on our way back from skiing in Red River, NM. I have a brand new appreciation for this part of the state and I'm looking forward to going back to explore!
Beautiful sunset over the mountains & plateaus of West Texas
Windmills. There were fields and fields of these!
The McDonald Observatory in the mountains outside of Ft. Davis
Have you heard of Marfa, TX? Best known for their "mysterious lights", I knew of this town because of a feature in Domino magazine several years ago. I can't wait to go back to Marfa soon!
The Thunderbird Hotel & Restaurant
This is the bank in Marfa. I was peeling my face off the car window drooling over all that gorgeous iron and tile work!
Now where else are you going to find a PINK fire station?!
Now we have a "thing" for ballroom anything in our house. I was lucky to spot this great sign!
This is the gas station turned art studio that was featured in the Domino spread
The local movie theatre. I just love old signs!
We also drove through Roswell, NM and cracked up at all the alien references!
Even the streetlights were "themed"!
We found a great place to rock climb in West Texas and I loved shooting these pictures!
Even an imaginary gun can be fun!
Always the "hams"!
Okay, now we'll be serious!

I snapped this in the car in Southern New Mexico. Isn't it beautiful?
