Hill Country Views


Yesterday Billy decided to take a day off from painting and just sorta lay around. I felt like getting out so I left the two lazy boys home and took off for a good long drive.

I can say with absolute honesty that if it were not for our GPS I would probably still be out there, lost. There are back ranch roads that go on for miles and miles and lead nowhere but to another long skinny road to nowhere. It was an absolutely gorgeous day to drive around and get googley eyed looking at the scenery. Here's a little of what I saw...









The grasses here are really pretty, sometimes tinged with a bright sepia. In contrast with the blue sky it comes together for a nice scene. I tried for some sunset shots but I did not really grab anything too great... the clouds were lit up in pinks and purples and were striping the sky in long streaks of dots. You will just have to try to imagine that one for yourself.

When I finally programmed home into the GPS I was about 45 minutes drive south west of camp. I came back to find the boys still lolling on the bed.

You take such great pictures! I love it when they are so crisp and clean that it doesn't even look real.

Thanks Michelle... Yes, I strive to clean up the world around me through photography.

Welcome home from your trip to Sin City. I hope you had a fun stay out there! Did you board the dogs while you were gone?

Rudy and 'the boots', I love it :)

Maddie and Jackson have never been boarded and at 5 yrs I think they might be too old for the new experience. So, Mark's 20 yr old sister stayed at our house to help out. He has an older sister that owns a pet sitting business, so she's someone we could always rely on too.
