    Readers' Comments
    Subject: West Texas
    I happened to stumble across your web site today, and was truely impressed. I grew up in west Texas (Val Verde Co, and Presidio Co), and know that there is not much there for the "passer-by". Just wanted to say thank you for helping to let others know that there is more to Texas than meets the eye. - Deena Smith
