A little watercolor

•March 15, 2021 • Leave a Comment

I take a pretty decent picture…. but don’t ask me to paint anything as my German Shepherd could do a better job than me.

Part of the fun of taking pics with an iPhone is the wide variety of apps that can take your image and turn it into a watercolor… as someone who couldn’t paint this scene of my life depended on it, it’s rather fun!

Bisti badlands

•March 14, 2021 • 2 Comments

The Bisti badlands in northwest New Mexico are full of surprises. Once upon a time, a lush forested region with plenty of water – today it is a desolate and isolated area well far away from the middle of nowhere.

If you go visit (and you should) – have a GPS, know how to use it, have plenty of water and a spirit of adventure and you will do just fine. The harsh climate and rough terrain are not for everyone but the journey is definitely worth the time it takes to get there.

Tools of the trade

Things I get to mess with almost on a daily basis. Another fun day at work!

The woods are lovely

Late winter, early spring in the east Texas woods are quite nice! Mosquitoes aren’t out, the snakes aren’t moving and the temperature is perfect.

Better get out while you can!

March 2

March 2nd is a good day of the year for Texians anywhere – in addition to being Texas Independence Day, it’s also Sam Houston’s birthday!

One of the great local traditions in Huntsville is someone always leaves a plate of oysters, black coffee and sugar cookies at Sam’s graveside. Legend has it, that was one of his favorite meals!

Grey but still good

Overcast and grey outside but any day you can go for a hike in the woods is a good day!

Hard to believe that it wasn’t that long ago that we had a pretty good cold spell here in Texas. And now I have to make sure Max gets his water after our hikes!

Stick around it will probably get cold again!! 😂😂😂
