A while ago my wife and I headed out to Marfa, TX. Apparently it is THE place to go, especially if you are a hipster or into art or something like that. But we heard great things and wanted to get the heck out of Dallas for a few days anyway. It's a bit of a drive (almost 9 hours) and it is in the middle of nowhere (literally), but turned out to be more than worth it. There isn't much there, but that's kind of the whole point. Spending most of my time in cities, it was eye opening and refreshing to see that much open space. Top that off with a laid-back attitude, great food, and nice locals, and you you have yourself a decent getaway spot.
So here a few photos from around town. And yes, that is a Prada store, although I believe it's just an art installation, not the real thing. After Marfa we headed over to Big Bend National Park, so I have few photos to share from there as well. So don't forget to check back!
