... spider on the road. Drove to Study Butte, and then west.

Then there are the Marfa lights that actually do exist. They are supposed to by mysterious lights out in the desert and what do you know, they are really there.
Meanwhile the trip through the desert was amazing. We went through SMALL towns that are barely a crossroads such ...
