Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on with a hot cup of coffee, practicing yoga, baking, or exploring the beautiful Lone Star State (in particular, the vast and mystical West Texas desert).
Texas is full of beautiful backroads, but none are quite as unique as Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive in Big Bend. This thirty-mile stretch takes you on an unforgettable journey through mountains, ranches of early settlers, and some of the most diverse ecology in the state. It allows you to see all the highlights of the park without leaving the comfort of your vehicle, while still providing plenty of opportunities to get out and hike along the way. See for yourself:
