Around the back side of Laguna Gloria, near the fountain, is an exhibit consisting of 2,000 coins welded with bolts. I then started crawling around on the ground with my camera in hand. This is pretty cool art, looking like someone emptied their coin jar across the patio.
The Hotel Paisano is a historic gem right in the heart of Marfa. If you find yourself in this city, you must take a few minutes to walk through and admire the hotel and the history that finds its home here.
