Lubbock, TX

I was in Lubbock, Texas over the weekend attending my grad school friend Becca's wedding. More on the wedding in a bit, but as it being my first time hanging out in Lubbock I thought I'd share some of the local flair.

We stayed at a really nice hotel that was across the street from the Texas Tech campus and near all the wedding festivities. The hotel was decorated in Texas flair. The hotel was also hosting an Elks conference so there were tons of old cowboys strolling around wearing cowboy hats.

Lubbock has a semiarid climate and primarily grows cotton. From the plane you could see miles and miles of irrigated cotton fields.


Comments are awesome!
