We have returned from what ended up being a spectacular drive across West Texas. While driving west with three children in tow is not for the faint of heart, we took it at our own pace, and made sure we afforded plenty of stops along the way to take it all in. There is so very much to share with you, and I am just beginning to piece all of the photographs together. Our journey began in Austin and took us all the way along the Mexican border and through the Chihuahuan desert to Marfa, with stops in Fredericksburg, Sonora, Ozona, Sanderson, Marathon, Alpine and San Antonio.
In the coming days I will be posting about Marathon and Marfa in particular, and Chef Grant will be guest blogging about the Caverns of Sonora. I’ve been itching to get him to do a guest post for a while now, and he has happily agreed. He might even share some recipes while he’s at it!
