Almost 1 year ago exactly, I traveled to Big Bend in West Texas and fell in love with the landscape, the fresh air and those stars! I thought I had seen stars before but the clear skies of Texas proved me wrong. Nothing makes you feel so small.
For me, the road trip down from Midland was so peaceful and serene and the cell reception was spotty at best. We listened to music and marveled at the oil rigs, the flat lands and then finally those majestic mountains in Big Bend. It's a spot I think about often and hope to visit again soon.
