It was a long drive through bugs and white-out rain storms to get to the glory of Marathon, Texas and the fun oasis of the Gage Hotel. Marathon is a ghost town apparently due to the fact that I-10 was built and diverted all of the cross country traffic away from US Highway 90. It was like watching Cars and seeing Radiator Springs in person. The glory was gone except for this fabulous hotel where we were shooting a wedding the next day. After unpacking, Christina and I wandered around the tiny town and shot a few pictures. Everything was run down and desolate.
