West Texas

by Kay~Kacey on 1/14/2009

West Texas goes on forever. Really. I’m sure it had nothing to do with days of partying with friends before driving it either! It truly goes on forever. Kind of like crossing Kansas on highway 70. Have you ever done that?

Well Texas’s version of Highway 70 is Highway 10. It’s pretty in a desolate kind of way.

highway 10 Texas

It’s the road that never ends…

it goes on and on my friends. Some people started building it not knowing what it was… (you’re welcome. You’ll get that song out of your head in a day or so, I promise…)

speed limit

It does have an awesome speed limit though!

SuperGuy likes to drive most of the time. I’m okay with that. I sit and knit, mess with the ipod playing our songs. Take pictures.

I do drive some of the time though.

To give SuperGuy a chance to relax…to nap….to take some photos.

texas rocks

why do all the photos he takes look vaguely breasticular?

rock formation

or nippular? (They are too words. Honest. Would I lie to you??)

I’m going to put him back behind the wheel… 🙄

That’s funny! It’s a guy thing, I guess.
I’d put him behind the wheel, too. Atleast we would take pictures EVERYBODY would want to see. tee hee

Yeah, I like to ride too. Hubby drives most of the time, I tend to doze off on long drives,, and yes I’ve driven I-10 across west Texas and I-70 across Kansas. They’re both loooooooong drives.

They can find them anywhere, can they not? :rofl:

It’s been a long time since I saw a 80 mph speed limit sign…..

I drove to Houston and San Antonio from Florida. Honestly, I thought I’d never be out of Texas. Ever.

Boring with a capital B. Wait til you get to New Mexico…there we saw cars broken down along side the road, that were stripped. And not just one…several. A word to the wise…if your car breaks down…don’t leave it unattended! :wtf:

As soon as I looked at those pixs I got the song “On the Road Again” stuck in my head…

You would never lie to us. 🙂 And the photos are gorgeous.

When i was a kid we’d drive from central Louisiana to Santa Fe, pulling a airstream half the time. I remember it took FOREVER. And we were always looking for mirages.

Funny! Good thing you are driving during winter as if it was any other time of the year, the smell between the oil refineries and the cattle ranches is enough to make you…well…up chuck!

I’ve always sworn it takes three times as long to drive through West Texas as it does the rest of the state.

Malisa January 14, 2009 at 7:28 pm

I am a West Texas girl…who misses it badly! However, I-10 sucks! Did you turn off I-10 and head south for the Davis Mountains? If you had, you would have seen some beautiful country! However, I-10 is one, long, scarey, endless stretch of road. Bad things happen on that road…and you can see why…it is so isolated!

What’s that? A castle on the top of that nipple?

Gayle January 15, 2009 at 12:26 pm

I must send my husband to this post. He would love SuperGuy’s photos!

80 mph? Wow!

Daisy January 15, 2009 at 9:33 pm

Husband is such a backseat driver I don’t like to let him have the passenger seat! I’d rather hang out with my book and camera or nap.

dlyn January 15, 2009 at 10:57 pm

Everything looks like a breast to my husband. wierdo 🙄

Tori Lennox January 16, 2009 at 12:02 pm

There actually IS a castle on top of one of those outcroppings, but I can’t remember exactly where it’s located.
