Adventures in Marfa

Since Chris and I met in Marfa, we decided to celebrate our one-year wedding anniversary with a trip there this past weekend. We glamped at El Cosmico the first night, then were at Hotel Paisano the rest of our stay. We made side trips to Big Bend and the McDonald Observatory, to get our hiking and geeking on. We went to Padre's (the site of our first encounter!). We ate at Cochineal (amazing), Fat Lyle's (the perfect break from our daylong Chinati tour), and Pizza Foundation (always a pleasure). We happened upon a show at Ballroom Marfa where the lead singer of Animal Collective, a member of Dirty Projectors, and the drummer from Ponytail were, you know, just playing music for free.

And we fell in love just a little bit more with the tiny town that plays such a huge role in our personal lore.
