108 E San Antonio St, Marfa, TX 79843, USA
A new addition to the art hub in the middle of nowhere, Marfa Contemporary occupies a former gas station. Expect to see cutting-edge works by regional and international artists. This appeared in the March/April 2013 issue.

11450 State Hwy Park Rd 5, Canyon, TX 79015, USA
A half hour south of Amarillo lies the second-largest canyon in the United States. Palo Duro offers lovely hiking and camping along its 120-mile length. Georgia O’Keeffe painted landscapes inspired by what she called the “burning, seething...

802 S Highland Ave, Marfa, TX 79843, USA
I fell in love. I fell in love with the town of Marfa. Safari tents. Stand alone bathtubs. Vintage trailers. Twinkle lights. Hammocks. An off the beaten path campground takes you to another world. You can choose to stay in one of their hip vintage...

Valentine, TX 79854, USA
So bizarre to stumble across a Prada store in the middle of the desert. This art installation by Ballroom Marfa depicts a life-size Prada store. Look closely and you'll find that only one shoe of each pair is displayed and that the store is...
Save Place
Big Bend National Park, TX, USA
One my favorite short hikes in Big Bend National Park is the Window Trail which leads directly to "The Window", a large rock canyon that cuts through the Chisos Mountains rim, allowing drainage from the Basin to the Chihuahuan Desert. The V-shaped...

Marfa, TX 79843, USA
I have to say I had my doubts when, in search of a lunch spot during our final day in Marfa, a local shop owner sent us to Fat Lyle's. I didn't know what to make of the unique name of the food stand. But I would put my preconceptions aside and...

305 S Spring St, Marfa, TX 79843, USA
I just got back from Marfa, Texas and I can't stop thinking about this pizza. It's a problem. I mean I lived in New York where you have access to some pretty amazing pizza. It's been almost a week and I still can't get the margherita pizza from...

9207 TX-17, Toyahvale, TX 79786, USA
After being asked to perform this wedding ceremony, I caught the bride and groom in what I feel to be a very honest moment. Three guests, one dog in attendance and a little white church made for an unforgettable day. We danced in the dirt while...

Spectacular art. My favorite installation was Dan Flavin's 6 bldgs containing these fluorescent colored lights.

2401 4th Ave, Canyon, TX 79015, USA
At the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum, Texas's biggest museum. Seriously thought about stealing this.

Marfa, TX 79843, USA
Far West Texas, between El Paso and Midland offers some great scenic landscapes and cool things to do. There is, of course, Marfa but head to Marathon and Ft. Davis as well. Big Bend National Park and Balmorhea Springs are close by. And if you are...

TX-118, Fort Davis, TX 79734, USA
There aren't a lot of options of places to stay when you're traveling through West Texas. Sure, you can stop along I-10 and stay in one of the many hotels in Fort Stockton, but trust me, it's worth the slight detour off of I-10 to go to the Indian...

Marathon, TX 79842, USA
Across the lonely miles of the West Texas desert unique towns are scattered. Marathon is a quiet artist town a short 45 minutes from Big Bend NP. On the small main street there is James Evan’s black and white photos in one storefront, a variety...

Marfa, TX 79843, USA
Entering the city, I passed Prada Marfa (co-produced by the Art Production Fund of New York City and Ballroom Marfa, a nonprofit cultural space), and within days, I was familiar with many of the main actors—Donald Judd (Judd Foundation & Chinati...

306 E San Antonio St, Marfa, TX 79843, USA
My husband and I arrived in Marfa and decided to stop for a drink at the Lost Horse Saloon, where the bar scene is quiet, but the crowd is a mixture of locals in denim and cowboy hats with visiting New Yorkers and roadtrippers from all over the...

234 RR 1050, Concan, TX 78838, USA
Sitting on the southwestern edge of the Edwards Plateau, Garner State Park is a 1,774-acre oasis of Texas tranquility nestled in the unique sub-region known as the Balcones Canyonlands. In the spring, rejuvenate in the cool, crystal-clear waters...
