Sheer size difference!
Texas is truly massive, measuring from north to south it is over 580 miles long, and east to west it is over 733 miles wide. This means there is a lot of exploring to do, with a lot of food to try on the way, and rodeos and ranches to visit, you will never have a boring day when you are in Texas. There is however also a lot of open space in Texas, which allows for the wildlife to blossom and bloom, such as the highways being completely full of multi-mix colour of wildflowers, including the official state flower called the Texas Bluebonnet. During the springtime, fields will be full of bluebonnets which make for beautiful pictures and a scenic view mimicking the colour of the blue sea.
The history of El Paso separates it from the other hiking destinations, over four centuries native Americans, Mexicans, Spanish and western civilisation have shaped and moulded what is now El Paso, so it has a lot of cultural and historical significance to it. With an average of 302 days of sunshine, it has also been nicknamed Sun City, which is perfect for a day of adventure and exploring the mountains scenes of El Paso. The importance of connecting nature cannot go amiss and seems to be underappreciated these days.
