On March 2, the state of Texas celebrated its Independence Day, a victory that marked the boundaries of a state so proud and so grand in scale that everything really is bigger there. Having spent 8 years of my childhood living everywhere from the Valley on the border of Mexico to Dallas, I can definitely vouch for that as well as proudly declare my complex love for Texas.
In the spirit of it all, I have sifted through some images of one of my favorite trips through the wonderfully diverse, yet vastly flat landscape of Texas. My fellow adventurer Grey and I set off on a route along the Southern border of the US and Mexico. We roamed for days through the sun-drenched southwest states, camping, swimming, and documenting. My favorite landscapes and images, however, were taken deep in the heart of Texas.
