Way Out West
Posted on April 20th, 2014
I decided to schedule a family vacation to my favorite part of the state—Far West Texas. I booked a room at the historic adobe Indian Lodge in Fort Davis, and packed an itinerary with heritage tourism attractions (so much for taking a break from my normal work routine).
It was nice to have my family in tow for one of these trips, since I (sometimes) find myself missing them when I’m flying solo on business—especially when I’m eating a memorable meal or watching little kids play with their parents. My wife and young sons tend to notice things that might not register on my radar screen (like a surprisingly refreshing flavor, a colorful bug on the hiking trail, etc.).
Although we didn’t get to experience all my favorite spots in the region (guess we’ll have to go back…), we managed to squeeze in a lot of fun stuff, from the Marfa Book Company to Kokernot Field in Alpine to Fort Davis National Historic Site to the Marfa Pizza Foundation. I have a feeling we won’t wait for another book release celebration to go “on back to Way Out West…”
