If you want to kick back, relax and have all the time in the world, take 90. If you want to go balls out and just get there, go 10.Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G925A using Big Bend Chat mobile app

There's not really much difference in time so I don't see why anyone would take I-10 over Hwy 90. Highway 90 is sort of like Big Bend. The first thing to me is that old "MOTEL" sign on the west end of Hondo. You pass south of the Hill Country through Uvalde and then it starts getting a little remote. The towns are spaced just far enough to have something to look forward to. When you clear Del Rio you start seeing distant mountains. Then there's Lake Amistad, the Pecos (how about that giant cave you see from the bridge!) and that incredible bridge, the railroad bridge, Judge Bean's, all those dry canyons that you want to stop and explore someday. And like someone mentioned the MANY, MANY Sanderson Canyons! I think you cross through "Sanderson Canyon" 4 or 5 times!Finally, before you can grow bored by the same scenery you get all excited making that south turn in Marathon towards Big Bend. I say Hwy 90.
Following a late start for home last month, I decided to break up the drive back to Houston by staying the night in Sanderson. I ate at the Eagles Nest Cafe and slept at The Outback Oasis. Another vote for Hwy 90!Sent from my iPhone using Big Bend Chat mobile app
