Playlist: Songs for Houston & I-10 Across South Texas

The stretch of I-10 between San Antonio and Houston is a long one.  There aren’t nearly as many towns as one might expect along an interstate that major and between two such prominent cities.  And in fact, the interstate itself is rather desolate – divided 4-lane all the way, and it might as well be a rural highway, because one can barely tell it’s an interstate.  It’s just a rural highway with limited access and a higher speed limit is all.

At least the scenery is pretty, though, especially once you get past the turnoffs for Lockhart/Luling.  So here’s a little soundtrack to go along with the vibe.
