Holga – El Cosmico, Marfa, Texas

After an exhausting weekend of shooting two days of a gorgeous wedding celebration in Houston, I find myself dreaming of West Texas.  Specifically of El Cosmico in Marfa TX.  Everything there slows waaaaaay down.  Phone reception is spotty at best and West Texas has the most beautiful big sky that you could possibly imagine.  At night, it seems like you can see every star.  When you’re there, activities include: sitting still, walking (but only if you really want to), swatting flies, listening to the wind, watching mind blowing sunsets (and sometimes sunrises) drinking beer and chatting with friends (or just sitting with them in silence).  Does this sound boring?  Well, it’s not.  It’s wonderful. 

El Cosmico is basically a camp site.  But it’s from the creative mind of Liz Lambert and her insanely talented team of designers, dreamers.  So it’s special, clever.  It has refurbished vintage trailers, a large tee pee, and yurts on site and available for renting.  Or you can simply camp in tents.

If you’re looking for bliss, which at this very moment I am doing, go to El Cosmico. 


Also, check out Hotel St. Cecilia and The Thunderbird for more of Liz’s truly unique hotels.
