This announcement is a year old, but if the plans are still intact, it will be a 3D printed development: https://www.dezeen.c...-cosmico-marfa/

Rriojas71, you should.  It's a great place to visit.  Every year, the Fort Worth Bicycling Association has a 3 day ride in the Davis Mountains, starting in Fort Davis.  On the second day, the route goes from Fort Davis, to Alpine, to Marfa, and back to Fort Davis.

Thanks for the info JTR.  We are actually going next weekend.  Not for a bike ride though.  :laugh:  I want to make it back alive.  Maybe after my knee gets a bit better.

You will have fun, even if you aren't on a bicycle.  The terrain is challenging out there when you are riding a bicycle. 

 

The community is very artistic and there are several interesting places to visit.  One night, you should try to go out to the Marfa Lights Viewing Pavilion to see if you can see them.  Also, star gazing at the Pavilion is excellent.
