Fort Davis and Marfa

We just got back from a trip out to the West Texas towns of Fort Davis and Marfa.  Saw alot of mountains and got to visit with family as well.  It provided some much needed rest.

View from our hotel (note the large radio antenna off to the right)

Ambling up some rocks

The Cottonwoods were in their full Fall glory

Minor structural problems

Great Pizza place in Marfa

The Chinati foundation is an art museum in a old military fort on the outskirts of Marfa.

Some big concrete minimalist sculptures by Donald Judd

A telescope at the McDonald Observatory in which I saw Jupiter and four of its moons.
