One thing that continually astounds me about Texas is how much space there is here. Growing up in the Northeast and spending most of my adult life in Manhattan, it was crazy to picture how spread out and huge things are in this state. When people say ‘everything’s bigger in Texas,’ it’s really true — the grocery stores here take up a full Manhattan city block.
But what that means, sometimes, is that about 30 minutes outside a city of two million people, you can have huge expanses that are nothing but wide open fields and a few hardly-trafficked country roads. And when you stumble across one of those pretty little enclaves, you obviously have to get a couple of photos.
