Nolan visited Texas in 1958 while on a Commonwealth Fund Harkness Fellowship in New York. He, Cynthia and Jinx arrived in New York in July 1958 in the middle of a heatwave. They decided to escape the heat and went on a road trip across America for 5 weeks. They crossed through the Panhandle of Texas on Route 66. This landscape is similar to the Palo Dura Canyon near Amarillo.
