The drive to Lubbock from Austin, while flat and redundant, did provide some cool moments. Once we started getting further northwest of Austin, we came upon miles and miles of wind farms in the high plains of Texas. They were very cool to drive through, and we (B) actually managed some good photos of the wind mills while driving.
As we got closer to Lubbock, we started seeing tons of oil rigs literally in the middle of nowhere. Very Texas.
For dinner, we went to a local Tex-Mex bar and had more queso (I couldn't leave Texas without having it for another night!) and tacos.
On the way back from the restaurant, we drove through some of the Texas Tech campus, and I was impressed. It's actually a really beautiful school. (Sorry no pictures. It was too dark.) Then, we headed back to the hotel so we could go to bed and get up early the next morning to head to Santa Fe.
