    Historic hotel in Marfa

    For movie buffs...this is the place where Liz Taylor, Rock Hudson, James Dean and other stars stayed while filming the movie "Giant" back in the 50s. The hotel is beautiful, and the shops and galleries feature Giant memorabilia. Marfa is a little out of the way, but well worth a detour. Art Galleries, Restaurants, and one of the nicest small-town Texas courthouses. Don't expect wi-fi or even a telephone in your room...a nostalgic experience!

    Cute little place. Bathroom was very tight. TV was small & had a line on the screen. Hotel overall was nice & quaint!

    Our last stop in Texas is Marfa, an arty town in the middle of nowhere. We had hoped to stay at El Cosmico (a campground with the coolest trailers you ever did see) but they're fully booked. In January. We end up at The Hotel Paisano, where the cast and crew of the movie Giant (including James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson) set up shop back in 1955.

    ... some true looking cowboys (and girl) sitting there. I walked down to the post office and bought stamps for some post cards – the postmistress was very friendly and somewhat excited about the cool little bags they had for stamps. Kelly and I walked through the Gage hotel, an historic and beautiful hotel with lovely cottages on the side. We inquired about prices (not too bad) and availability, but only one was available for that night. ...

    ... it was beautiful and transformed the trees into fairy lands.

    Its impossible to impart the vastness that is Texas. They call it Big Sky Country for a reason-the sky goes on forever. And sunrise and sunset are magical. The sunrise creeps into the morning sky, bringing a new day to life slowly like a trickle. The end of the day is just as subtle as the sun sinks below the light show. Then the moon and the stars come out in full and the sky is ...

    The Fort is in the process of being restored but much of the fort was still standing. This is one of the best examples of a frontier post (no walls) and it shows the role the military played in the settlement ...

    ... about 3:30pm. Bought a state park pass. Went for a wonderful swim in the springs – we looked for the springs but did not find them (guess we did not look hard enough). Not too many people there, although more came after we did. The springs were so clear that things looked closer than they actually were. At one point we were swimming and we thought the bottom was a couple feet below us – turned out we could not even reach the ...
