The Marfa Lights and other sites in the Big Bend area

For years I had heard about the Marfa Lights in Marfa Texas. They supposedly moved around and changed colors. People have tried to explain them, find their origins, and film them. Clayton Williams had even gone so far as to build and donate a visitor’s center and rest stop on Highway 90 seven miles east of Marfa for people to attempt to see these lights.

We’re all ‘parked out back’

Joe’s red truck is parked behind his house. It hasn’t moved in days. Joe gets in his red truck every morning and drives around. He’s a member of every fraternal orga nization, a regular at the brewpub, and has friends in every corner of town. Joe picks up a coffee and spends most mornings greeting people out the window of his red pick-up.
