Some old skulls, Marathon
Marathon  is a town in the Big Bend Country region of Texas.
Highway 90 runs through the town center.
- Gage Hotel, 101 Highway 90 West, ☎ +1 800-884-GAGE or +1 432-386-4205 (email@example.com, fax: +1 432-386-4510), . checkin: 4PM; checkout: 11AM. Built in the 1920s by cattle tycoon Alfred Gage so he would have a place to stay while overseeing his interests in the area. The hotel has since been carefully restored and now includes a cafe and a spa. Rooms in the original building (with or without private bath) are the biggest bargain; those in the Los Portales annex and in the 3 well-appointed houses nearby offer more modern trappings without sacrificing the West Texas mood. $90-$381. edit
Traveling west on Highway 90, you'll find:
- Alpine, with a host of restaurants.
- Marfa, with its art galleries and mysterious lights.
