    El Cosmico, Marfa, Texas:

    Spent two nights in the Far West Texas home to wanderers, artists, ranchers, and mysterious lights: Marfa.

    We first experienced the town nearly a decade ago staying with friends at El Cosmico, an eclectic campground featuring vintage trailers, yurts, teepees, and the annual Trans-Pecos Festival of Music + Love. On this trip we dry camped in the parking lot alongside a handful of RVs by booking through Hipcamp.

    A walk around town reveals a variety of art installations. Drive a short distance west to get a Giant serenade and a bit further to visit the always closed Prada store. Drive east at night for a possible close encounter with the elusive Marfa Lights.

    Marfa is the perfect place to practice the art of Dolce Far Niente… take the time to waste a moment.
