Tag Archives: Big Bend National Park



The native Texans are not kidding when they call their state “a whole other country”.  This enormous state has ocean front property, mountains, deserts, cotton fields, oil wells galore, a city dedicated to growing the largest and most beautiful roses, cowboy towns, sophisticated cities, national league football, baseball and basketball teams and the list goes on and on. 

Because of the size and diversity of this state, I have decided to truly do justice to Texas I will have to divide it into seven regions – kind of like eating an elephant – one bite at a time.  If you enjoy reading about the past and current history of the highways and towns, learning what there is to see and do plus where to eat and sleep then this is the travel blog for you.  If you like history, that is my expertise and I will be providing information on the towns and area as we journey down each highway.  Like to take road trips but don’t have the time or resources to travel as much as you would like?  Then join me, while we”Road Trip” across Texas from the comfort of your home.  Hopefully you will enjoy my highway commentaries about what there is to see and do, what is available along the way for lodging and dining and the monthly events in the area.  We will also journey down four or five more highways, visit the two National Parks in this area and skirt along the Mexican border before moving on to another fascinating region of this huge state. 

This is going to be a long blog and hopefully will turn into an e-book or two or three along the way.  If you are looking for something or just have a question, please feel free to ask.  If I don’t know the answer I will do the research for you and find it.  Better yet if you have a story, picture or comment you would like to add to the blog PLEASE feel free to do so.
