Marfa Trip

I did a little job at the Hotel Saint George last week and while I was there the manager invited us back for a free night. So after work we headed to Marfa to spend the night and explore the next day.

This is the Hotel Saint George

The Hotel is very Marfa like, minimalist, artsy with a bookstore on one end. The room was great with very comfy King sized bed and a large shower. We loved it!!

Did I mention Marfa was an artsy town? This is an old gas station turned into a gallery. Loved the sign!!

Marfa is a mix of old and new as seen here. The Hotel Saint George is in the background and behind it is older closed up shops.
