I have crossed Texas 30+ times from "stem to stern" and that's not counting the halfway times.  About everything said can be either true or false depending.....  I know for certain that the Sun can and will rise and set on you and you will still be in Texas.  I also know from firsthand experiences that the "Highway Man" will send you to see the "Judge"!!   :o

Can't argue any of them points Pete.Texas is a big place and has a lot of different country, something for everybody I reckon.

Well nearly, myself, I am partial to mountains, which it doesn't have.
Try Big Bend, no Atlas Mountains, but not foot hills either.  Called Davis Mountains.
Been there, not my kind of mountains. That is not to say there is not some beauty in them, just not my kind of country.
MM, I could tell you some stories about them highwaymen, and judges too, heck even the jailers. lol

I was surprised to learn that Texas has a place higher than our Mt Marcy which is just over a mile in elevation.
Guadalupe Peak is 8,751 ft.

Texas Ranger you have to know... I have spent a few times wandering around in your beautiful state of Texas, done some fishing, eaten some of the best steaks Ive ever had, before I was done I thought I was chewing a full hind quarter, saw more livestock trailers behind one ton pickups with sharp young ladies flying down the highway in one day than Id see here in Vermont in a year! But one thing, Texas wasnt the only state to have been a Republic. Vermont was a Republic from 1777 - 1791 and too can become a separate country if the voters were to so choose..

But keep the freedoms going down there in Texas because we are losing them in Vermont!

My great something or other grandfather was a Green Mountain Boy and enlisted in the 1st Vermont Volunteers, after the war of northern aggression  he moved south, to Missouri, and I kept moving south.  Yup, you can get steak poison from some of the bigger ones.   digin1  By the by, today saw the fall of the Alamo in 1836, start of us.

War of northern aggression?
Depends on your geographical persuasion.
Up here it is the war of southern miscalculation.
Only been to the Fort Worth area so far but would love to spend more time seeing the rest of the state but will probably take more time than I have left on God's green earth.

lots of things to see, I have been here over 50 years and still have only seen a small portion of it, some I will never see, age and health and all that.

Same thing with me here in NY
Been here all but 3 years of my 81 plus so far and have only seen a fraction of the historic and other sights.
been too busy I guess.
