The borders of Texas run for nearly 3000 miles, from the Gulf of Mexico, the length of the Rio Grande, the New Mexico desert, the great plains, the Red River, the piney woods in the east, and down the Sabine River. All of these borders have evolved over time and their tale is the tale of Texas history. The result is a most pleasing shape.
