On and on and on and on. With
nothing but the odometer and the ubiquitous creosote bush for company,
begins to wonder 'Will Texas ever end?' Boy, if you feel that
way today on the interstates, can you imagine what it must have been like
for the early traveler? Just might as well
relax like this good 'ol boy! There's an early roadie postcard that reads "The
sun has riz, the sun has set, and here we is, in Texas yet!"
Well pardner, with over 800 miles of
old highway 80 to explore (per my 1940 Champlin road map) a boy could
probably explore Texas 80 for years and not find everything so we've just
gotta jump on in and grab the bull by the horns. So grab hold of the bridle and let's check out whichever
part of the state you want to rope first: a few pics of the wooded eastern
part of the state, the rolling hills of the central part of the state, or
the vast expanses of Judge Roy Bean's west Texas. The choice is
yours, so giddy-yup!
Author's Note: Again, I realize that many of
these pages are large and slow loading, but they're laden with pics and I
sure think it's worth the wait!
