These were taken about half a mile west of my house, looking southward, about where my great-grandparents house once stood. Especially after a rain you can still find the occasional tool or arrowhead from the Coahuiltecan and Lepan Apache peoples who once inhabited the region long, long ago. The tall trees you can just see on the horizon to the right of center marks the headquarters of the neighboring ranch to the south. It's full of thorny bushes, cactus, scorpions, tarantulas, coyotes, rattlesnakes and other unsavory characters, but it's home sweet home to me.
Lovely, in a wild sort of way. Thanks for sharing these pictures.ReplyDelete
It certainly looks a combination of lovely and foreboding.ReplyDelete
