Annnnd, this.


Stunning, and picturesque.

In all honesty, Lubbock does have some very scenic locations which turn into photo opportunities. And admittedly, we LOVE taking photos at a lot of big events, like Texas Tech Football games.

Pretty cool, eh?

Again, I have to question the source just a little bit. A website devoted to one of the great nightmares of travel, airport parking?  It's like a website dedicated to cooking meth publishing a survey of the 10 most family-friendly kitten breeds. It just doesn't make a lot of sense.

But, Lubbock is on a top 10 list in a good way...so we will take it. Now, I need to bookmark that site about meth... Los Pollos something or other.
