Date with UFO
Alpine is another small town, way off the tourist path and in middle of hills of south west Texas. It is couple of hours from Odessa TX and an hour from Mexican boarder.
Close by there is mysterious Marfa lights usually seen near U.S. Route 67 on Mitchell Flat east of Marfa. Local believe that they are UFO’s and there is an observation building. I was there for couple of hours and didn’t see any light, but it was fun.
It is a great place if you want to be really away from everything and rest for a week, I wouldn’t do it for two weeks though!
