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).
One of the best scenic overlooks in Texas showcases panoramic views that would otherwise take several hours (and lots of sweat and aching muscles) to enjoy. When you pull off at the Main Overlook Point in El Paso, it’s as if you’ve climbed the nearly 7,200-foot-tall Franklin Mountain…yet all you’ve done is press the accelerator in your car.
Have you gawked at the Franklin Mountains from this breathtaking scenic overlook? If so, we’d love to hear all about your experience in the comments! Don’t forget to check out our previous article for a great restaurant in El Paso to try while you’re in town.
