Get ready for the flowers!

I confess, this is a bit of a tease. These pictures, taken at the foot of the Guadalupe Mountains National Park, were shot last April. (That yellow you see in the foreground of the first photo--all flowers!) But you should know that bluebonnets started appearing in Terlingua just about a month ago, and we're starting to see wild flowers pop up all over the Texas Mountain Trail Region.

Thought you folks in colder climates might like to see some pretty pictures. Come see the flowers for yourself soon!

Taking the time to look at the little things

The stunning vistas in the Texas mountains can certainly inspire us to look up and out. But even on a day with 115 mile visibility at the Big Bend National Park, small jewels can be found by looking down. Look at what we saw on the South Rim trail not too long ago--a beautiful six inch rock bullseye right there at our feet.
