Per a Vaquero, directions to Big Bend
I love this. A vaquero (cowboy) gives directions to Big Bend:
"You go south from Fort Davis
Until you come to the place
Where rainbows wait for rain....
And the river is kept in a stone box
And water runs uphill.
And the mountains float in the air.
Except at night, when they run away to play
With other mountains."
----- a Mexican vaquero (cowboy) describing how to get to Big Bend from Fort Davis:, Texas, as told to Frank Tolbert, legendary Dallas newspaperman
Beauty is only skin deep but Texas is to the bone.
