I once had a terrible bicycle accident riding on the streets of Marfa due to the excess pile up of "chip seal" pebbles. They accumulate at every intersection. Simply drive to 3 or 4 intersection on the NE side of town, pull out the flat shovel and buckets, and do Marfa a favor and clean up the streets. You are also helping the City of Marfa from any liabilities from bike accidents (side note: I am not a lawyer, but rather, a Professional Engineer).
Speaking of, I was part of an engineer team to get the first residentially permitted grey water project approved in Austin. When doing grey water, one must first know the percolation rate of the soil. Then dig out the appropriate volume and back fill with said gravel pebbles. It is allowable to use mulch on top of your perforated pipe. You will definitely want more than two "feed buckets" - not sure the volume of that, but you probably need closer to (15) 5 gallons buckets (for an 8" wide ditch with 1 foot of gravel below your perforated drain pipe, and 1' of gravel above perforated drain pipe).

There's a pile of rocks on the north side of 67/90 between the paisano pass marker and the picnic area. it looks like txdot cleaned up the "rock slide" areas and piled up the rocks. they'd probably look good in a garden, too. alpine txdot's office number is 432-837-7814 if you want to discuss it with them.
it's close to mile marker 916. there's more loose gravel-sized material at the base of the road cutouts.
