WESTERN TRAILS: TEXAS CANYON

RoadsideParkAZBaja

This is a rest area in Texas Canyon, Arizona — on the road to El Paso.

Below is a Whataburger purchased in El Paso:

The Whataburger is the best fast-food burger known to mankind but only available in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona, as far as I’ve been able to determine. The one I’m eating in the picture is generously garnished with jalapeños. Whataburger — since 1950, like me.

One of the tales in my book Fourteen Western Stories is set in El Paso, in the days before Whataburgers.

  1. Your photo of the rest stop is FANTASTIC.
    (For me it could almost function as empirical evidence for
    the existence of God. But that’s just me.)

    • I’m not sure that the Whataburger (the #4 with jalapeños) is empirical evidence for the existence of God, but it’s a strong indication of same, I think.
