JUDD FOUNDATION TOUR - THE BLOCK
We weren't allowed to take photos on the tour, which is unfortunate because we saw some amazing stuff. I highly recommend a tour if you have the chance. Judd's attitude was pretty pretentious and overly sensitive, in my opinion, but his work is the kind of precise, geometric, industrial aesthetic that I really enjoy.
We also snuck a view of the famous concrete blocks at the Chinati Foundation (closed on Mondays) from the road.
And of course, we had to stop by the iconic Prada Marfa. This was a compulsory stop and it elevated my Instagram from a low-level basic bitch to maybe the top 10%.
The airport closest to Marfa is in El Paso so that's where we stayed for the night.
SCENIC DRIVE OVERLOOK
Before heading to our hotel, we drove up to a high point along Scenic Drive.
HOTEL INDIGO EL PASO DOWNTOWN
For dinner, we went to a restaurant just a five minute walk from the hotel. We were given really delicious crusty bread to start and a plate of balsamic vinegar with chili flakes and parmesan for dipping.

It was a great trip. I'm just cementing my love for the American southwest with every visit. Maybe next year we'll head to Utah and Colorado?
