Hitting the Road?

Marfa Truck

I am contemplating another road trip and I’m not sure which route to take. Since I live in a state that is big and bold enough to be it’s own country, crossing state lines is not always a quick or easy venture. I’ve made a few trips up to Oklahoma (our closet neighbor). I’ve gone out to Louisiana to explore New Orleans and I’ve even driven the 8 + hours to New Mexico. So, I’ve visited parts of the neighboring states and now think it might be time to explore Texas some more. The last time I made any real trip of length within the state was almost 7 years ago. I went down to Marfa and explored the Big Bend region a bit, but not nearly as much as I would’ve liked to.

When I was a teenager I used to pull out the Texas map and find the towns with the strangest names, and thought, ‘one day I’m going to visit all these towns with the funny names’. Since then I’ve been to some, but not most. Maybe that needs to be a road trip theme. Hmm…

Texas has many wide open spaces to explore. And Spring time is probably one of the best times to do it. There’s nothing like that feeling of getting behind the wheel, your fave tunes blaring from the car stereo and the open road ahead of you. And there’s nothing like the open roads of Texas.

As I’ve been deciding where to drive to next, I’ve been looking through my images from past road trips. Would you like to take a ride?…

Pool Hall

Pool anyone? This is from a short day trip to Honeygrove, Texas. Not sure if this was actually in the town or right outside it. I bet this was once a swinging place!

 

City Shop Athens

Get your shoes repaired in a small Athens, Texas shop. A shot from a Winter road trip East of Dallas.

 

Caddo Lake Soup

I made it to one of the towns with a funny name. Some tomato soup along the shores of Caddo Lake in Uncertain, Texas.

 

Gas

I have no idea where this abandoned gas station was, but this sign was definitely on point!

 

Cadillac Ranch

The famous Cadillac Ranch along Route 66 in Amarillo.

 

Houston

I visited one of the largest cities in the country one muggy week in the Summer. Houston is certainly inspiring to me.

 

…So, where to now? What areas to visit next? Any suggestions on drives to make in Texas? I’d love to hear about them. Drop me a line in the comments. Til then, happy travels on the open road!
