More than four years ago, we decided to feature some of the great places in Far West Texas and the six-county region of the Texas Mountain Trail with all of you, and this blog was born.  We hope to continue to inspire you to wonder, appreciate, find adventure in, learn about, preserve, and visit this great place.  With the help of many of YOU, we'd like to have at least 1,500 more days!  Our hats off to the guest photographers over the years (and there are many more than we're showing here) for sharing your lovely work with the rest of us!   Y'all are the BEST!  (click on any of the images to get a closer view!)
