Road Trip: East Texas

I tend to have a glamorized view of road trips.  I know they consist of 75 percent driving, but as soon as I am back & reminiscing, I forget that fact. Tom & I spent a couple of days, just driving. This day was one of them. We left Austin & were heading towards Louisiana to camp for the night. That's when we found this incredible place, right on the side of the highway. It was an abandoned town. I don't know how to describe it. It was overgrown with weeds, the dozens of old buildings and homes were boarded up. And there were bugs everywhere of course.

The Road Trip: Texas

Tom & I have always wanted to go on a road trip across the country & we decided that now would be the perfect time to go. So we packed up our things, I quit my job & we set out across the country and back. We left late one night & drove through the night all the way to Marfa, Texas. I wish I had pictures to explain the cuteness that was Marfa. The town was the tinniest thing & you could walk the whole thing in 15 minutes. Unfortunately, I didn't load my film correctly, like a rookie, and the only picture I have is the one above. We arrived and set up our tent at El Cosmico, which was a lovely place. Seeing as we had driven through the night, we were dead tired, but one can't fall asleep at a campsite at 2pm, so we set off to explore. I ate the most delicious burger in my life that afternoon. We then headed back and rested and read while lounging in hammocks. Then badness happened. It got ridiculously windy. So windy that even though our tent was set up perfectly, the wind was so strong it made the tent lay flat. Camping turned out to be impossible, so we packed up & drove to the next town over, rented a room & fell asleep. Either way, Alpine was good to us, despite only having one radio station.

These pictures are from a while back, well, March to be specific. For Tom's birthday we spent the day riding horses at Will Roger's State Park, amongst other things. Seeing these pictures certainly makes me miss my long hair.
