Day 1: Dallas to Lubbock

I’d long been curious about the Texas Panhandle region, but never had a compelling reason to actually visit. That reason recently appeared in the form of a family matter that required me to go to Dallas quickly, but left me with time to come home slowly and thoughtfully.

Herewith, Day 1 of my sojourn from Dallas to Seattle starting in west Texas:

Eastland, Texas
Hey, it may be flat and lonely, but at least you can drive fast!

Post, Texas (Is your money happy here?)

Cotton Court Hotel

I have a thing for well-decorated boutique hotels, and I found the delightful Cotton Court Hotel in Lubbock for my first night. It’s newly built, but they carried a historically-influenced style off with aplomb. I doubt my travels will ever take me through Lubbock again, but I know where I’d stay if they do:
