DIRECTIONS: West on RR 2810 (look for the sign for the springs) DISTANCE: 55 miles
To be fair, Ranch Road 2810 isn’t exactly a road to nowhere—it leads to the oasis of Chinati Hot Springs. But this spot outside Marfa did provide the perfect setting for this month’s gorgeously remote-looking cover. It’s unlikely that you’ll see another soul out here (except maybe the Border Patrol), and be forewarned: the final 22 miles bump along over a gravel road, so a high-clearance vehicle is recommended.
