Sonora has caves of bacon sooooo...
What would otherwise just be another sleepy West Texas town along the stretch of flat two lane highways that run through the area, Sonora sets itself apart with one word: caverns. There’s no need to go all the way to Carlsbad Caverns because Sonora has got your stalagmites and stalactites right here. Fun fact: did you know that horizontal running sheets of striated cavern rock is known as “cave bacon”?
OK, yes Marfa is pretty damn cool
All right, Marfa. Maybe we were just playing hard to get. Sure, we might get annoyed that every trendy hipster celebrity and even Beyoncé has to take their picture outside the art installation of the fake Prada Marfa boutique. And yeah, it feels like everyone is catching onto “our” special thing. But then we check into our yurt at El Cosmico and we remember just why we fell in love with you in the first place and we fall in love all over again. We can’t quit you.

Amanda Cobra frankly just wishes she was communing with the coyotes at El Cosmico right now. Contribute to her KickFundMe to send her back to the desert on Twitter @amandacobra.
