More West Texas

The journey was an amenity in itself because of the vistas. Many of the desert plants are blooming this time of year. Birds and wildlife abound. Most exciting to see were hummingbirds and wild turkeys, a heard of aodads, and a rattle snake two feet from my path.

Marfa was chic. I didn’t stay to see the lights but did visit several of the sights. The Wrong Store was a very cool place. Lot’s of shops, galleries and books, books, books.

Fort Davis is a nice western town with shops and eateries.

Star gazing was the ideal night activity. I also went up to McDonald Observatory with more nice views although there was a lot of dust in the air and rain left much to be desired to cleanse the air.

Captured some beautiful sunsets and sunrises that I hope to recreate on canvas.

Hiking in Big Bend was the best. The views were amazing and the colors were fantastic. The Rio Grand was a beautiful aqua color.
