Every year around this time we all pile into our cars and head out to West Texas to spend some time in Marfa and at Mountain GAR. The landscape is just so different from East Texas.

We usually do the full Chinati tour and Judd out for a while. It seems like every time we do this tour a creature shows up and steals the show. This year it was this tarantula, spotted first by Robert Pruitt. The tour guide told us it was a male because it doesn’t have red hairy legs.

An awesome desert plant that, unfortunately, we don’t know the name of. But check out those colors!

On the last day at Mountain GAR we headed out to look for the rumored petroglyphs. Dwindi is so excited. Hiking is her favorite thing!
