I got back in the MINI (What a great car! Speed, sportscar-like handing and an average of 35 MPG) and drove into the sunset toward my destination.
Two hours south of Marfa (and an 18-hour drive from LA), nestled in the hillside of a ghost town, is La Posada Milagro, a rustic-chic hotel built from the rocky ruins of miners' cabins, consisting of four guest rooms and an espresso bar.
And there's even an oven.
My first morning, I discovered another coincidence. When helping myself to a cup of coffee I found a cup sporting my pie business logo, the red and white checkered tablecloth pattern. But was it a coincidence? I don't think so!
Looks like I might be staying longer than I planned.
