I just got back from spending some time in west Texas. I was there for much of March. We visited Big Bend National Park, Guadalupe Mountains National Park, and the towns of Alpine, Fort Davis, Marathon, and Terlingua.
I wrote about our stay in Big Bend in this post – Big Bend National Park. I also did a post about Marathon here – West of the Pecos – Marathon, Texas. I just got home and I’m editing together some videos I shot and organizing my photos. I thought I’d share some more photos and videos of west Texas in this post.
Here’s a dashcam video of driving on I-10 from Fredericksburg to Fort Stockton and then down Route 385 to Marathon. It a short composition of several segments that show a little of what it’s like there. So different from the East Coast where I live.
Here’s another one of driving in Big Bend.
Its really a spectacular place. Its part of the Chihuahuan Desert. Its big sky where you can see for 15-20 miles in the distance. Its a place where you can drive for 60 miles and not see a house or a telephone pole. Its a place where time has stood still in many areas. Here are some more pictures.
