Texas: Marathon - El Paso

Driving to El Paso. The day started out hazy and ended as overcast - good driving weather but makes photos look grey!
This was fairly early in the day.


Ah, Valentine. On the far side of the town we passed THIS...

Endless roads. I was surprised at how few photos I had taken on that drive, but I guess I was getting immune to roads and desert scapes and mountains, or I was just apathetic and depressed at having to leave.
Whatever the reason, it does not matter - the images are left inside my head and will stay there for a long, long time. 

A Lone Star on a mountainside in El Paso, Saturday night. Apologies for the blur. I have a bunch of just as or even more blurry photos of Erik under a sign with a Blue Devil on it. ;)

  1. I'm impressed that you made it all the way in that old car. Cool!

    And of course I couldn't avoid the temptation of clicking on THIS >:)

    Cold As Heaven

    1. That car has rolled around quite a bit, but with some overheating problems (see earlier post dedicated to the Wagon..). E came up from Austin to Midland/Odessa and picked me up, then we went down to Big Bend, back up to Marathon, and west to El Paso (not mentioning all the day trips!). Then he rolled back to Marathon, more day trips, then back to Austin.

      Now (tonight) Erik is in your town (if everything has gone according to plan) making life unsafe for the locals, so you'd better stay indoors... or something. >:D
