So I looked it up on Amtrak, and unless we are willing to leave on Friday and return on Monday, there is no train to Alpine. *sniff*

Tell Me How Long the Train's Been Gone
Today in yoga class, someone talked about a train from Houston to Alpine, Texas, which is apparently a small pleasant valley in some small mountains (or large hills, depending upon how you see things). I thought that sounded like a nice weekend jaunt. Take the train to Alpine, rent a car and drive to Marfa, a strange little arty town nearby.
