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.
