New byline this month! I have the honor of writing about my hometown for Texas Highways, which is the state's biggest and best travel magazine. Given the assignment of exploring classic "old" Amarillo as well as some of the city's newest offerings for visitors, I covered everything from Palo Duro Canyon and Cadillac Ranch to the newish Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts and upstart restaurants like YCSF.
Also, I talk about the rodeos and stickhorses of my childhood, and how Boots 'n' Jeans has been replaced by a Jimmy's Egg, which is delicious but kind of sad.
It's a different type of writing for me but the project was a lot of fun. Read it here.
