We're excited about the February issue of Texas Highways (which is in the mail). This issue includes feature articles about Marfa, Fort Davis and the Big Bend Ranch State Park.
Barbara Rodriguez wrote a couple of personal and amusing features about traveling the trans-Pecos with her 10-year-old son, Elliott (who has starred in several of Babs' stories). Those who have been a touch daunted by the palpable hauteur in some of the art-world haunts (and we receive notes to that effect) will welcome theÂ light-hearted, travel-with-child perspective. Ms Rodriguez also teamed up with Elliott to make the Nature Conservancy's Madera Canyon hike near Fort Davis, and that story will remind readers of a new way to enjoy the sky island of the Davis Mountains. And we can always rely on Wolfman Klepper to evoke the mystery and magic of the velvety dark skies.
