|A fun sight greets travelers just off I-10, the Sands Motel sign in Van Horn. A remnant from an earlier road culture, the sign sits at the eastern edge of the town. The cafe, which still operates, was a set in the 2005 Cannes-winning film, The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada.|
Tommy Lee Jones, January Jones, Dwight Yoakam, and Melissa Leo all had scenes in the Sands Motel cafe.
All this week, we're featuring photographs by Dan Baeza, a Van Horn native and Texas A&M Commerce student. Dan served as our photography intern earlier this summer and created some beautiful shots to share with all of you!
