We have been hard hit this year by an explosive spring flower demonstration. The Ocotillo blooms make it look like Van Gogh went mad with a paintbrush, dotting the landscape with reflective orange and red highlights, matching the color of the desert sunsets. And the Crazy Gaint Bluebonnets add a dark blue, almost purple hue to reflect the morning sky.
In other news, a couple of days ago, a friend and I spotted a Mountain Lion pacing around in front of its cave, the 2nd lion I have seen out here so far.
This is certainly the Texas that most people are unfamiliar with.
