I was going through some old photos and stumbled across these signs from an old Big Bend trip. We usually like to visit in late November/early December, and that particular year there was quite a bit of snow.

The Marathon Motel and RV Park in Marathon. The Maverick Inn in Alpine.

One of my favorites - the Stardust Motel in Marfa (like most motel signs, the actual motel no longer exists).

The Palace Theater and Thunderbird Restaurant in Marfa.

Since it was freezing cold the week we were there, I didn't get the opportunity to take a lot of pictures. If I ever get through the The Signs of Austin, you can count on my next project being "The Motels of Texas."
