Yesterday we made a quick trip to Alpine under majestic skies. Didn’t actually go into the Dollar Store—rather our heads did a synchronized turn as we drove by, resulting a a break-slam and turn around maneuver.

Today we head to Terlingua and Marathon because the house is rented out for the weekend. At this point I am not only a little weary of packing and unpacking the suitcase but the office and the kitchen, too. On the other hand, I am curious to venture even further into the middle of nowhere and see what else there is to see here.
