What County is El Paso?
Strangers (Europeans) rarely get lost here. El Paso is located in the far west of Texas far away from the other major cities of Texas. El Paso belongs to a different time zone than the rest of Texas. However, only through the Rio Grande is the city separated from Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican province of Chihuahua. Some border crossings connect both cities, which differ by the degree of relative prosperity, but both of which are more likely to be the Mexican sphere in terms of atmosphere and way of life. El Paso is also a starting point for trips to the Guadalupe Mountains National Park. The town of Marfa was founded in 1883 as a railway water station. Today, the city is a popular destination. In recent years, some artists have settled here. A previously unexplained natural phenomenon are the so-called Marfa Lights, lights that appear in the twilight between Marfa and the Paisano Pass and whose cause is not yet found.
