I could be biased, but Texas is the most beautiful place on Earth. Well, not Dallas. Or Waco. Or Houston. But as soon as you get out of earshot of I-35, it starts getting gorgeous, and if you drive and keep driving for about ten thousand hours, you’ll get to far west Texas.

The towns down there have crazy sexy names like Marfa, Presidio, Terlingua and Lajitas. There you will find an eclectic collection of cowboy-poets, artists, UFOs, hippies and outlaws, as well as a democratically elected, beer-drinking mayor who happens to be a goat.
