Patrick, Victor, and I (Joseph) just wrapped up day two of our five-day West Texas tour, an enjoyable journey thus far.
Day one got off to a rocky start outside of Marble Falls (damn you, GPS!), but we quickly recovered and continued on to El Paso. Highlights included meeting a dog-showing poodle peddler from Washington state, swimming in the spring-fed pool at Balmorhea State Park, and revisiting some of the houses we grew up in.
We stayed in El Paso for day two, traveling around the rapidly-growing city and its surrounding communities. We started off with Uncle Hiram in his Canutillo bakery, then stopped by Franklin Mountains State Park on the way out to Fort Bliss. Following Fort Bliss, we stopped by the Charcoaler for some burgers (El Paso's finest) and continued on to the missions in Ysleta and Socorro.
The three of us will continue our trip by visiting Marfa, Alpine, and Fort Davis. We plan to head to San Angelo for day four and back home on day five. Check back for updates during and after our trip!
