Junction existed before I-10, which was formed in 1957. A sign of this is its '50s style motels, such as:
Signs such as this one for Isaack's Restaurant typically elicit miscellaneous curses, such as "Holy sh*t!", and cause the slamming of car brakes. I just can't believe ones like this are still around. It has to be vintage. I felt like I was in an episode of "I Love Lucy."
Upon leaving Junction, at 80 mph I might add, to its south is a Lover's Leap, providing a nice view of Junction and the surrounding Hill Country.
