Rural Roads in Texas

When I was in India and new in America I was under the impression that all roads in this country are fantastically paved super highways built so vehicles can whizz past hundreds of miles in a matter of hours. While this is largely true there are some roads that are not too different from Indian roads.

Case in point is the rural roads in Texas that I just drove past today in a bid to reach the Mineral Wells Fossil Park. This road known as "Indian Creek Road" is quite a mess, there is no trace/ sign of asphalt, it is mud and rock all the way the minute one turns off the highway and passes the Indian Creek Cemetery. It seems as if after the cemetery the road construction is also dead.

Here are some pictures :-
