my New Years trip was to an area of Texas just north of the Big Bend National Park. Little town called Alpine. Went Saturaday to another little town up the road and photographed some dead trees. Very cool...then yesterday I went with my hostess and another woman to a ranch south of where my friend lives. I had delivered prints I had printed for her and l wanted to see the ranch. We all piled into the pickup and blasted down to the Nivell Ranch and photographed some more trees. We saw a flock of wild turkeys (maybe 10 or so) deer and a couple of antelope. Very cool outting. Then it was back to their ranch and me off to my 8.5 hour trip home. Got home about 11pm. I am ready to go back.
