West Texas is where deep blue mesas at the Big Bend and the plunging, layered walls of Palo Duro Canyon inspire awe; where off-the-beaten-path towns serve fine cuisine; where you can find a Picasso original hanging in a jailhouse museum; where views go on forever and millions of stars come out at night.
