Not sure but i think you can actually pick up the curvature of the earth.. You can almost "see" cattle being driven across here, and guessing its one of the few places that are the same as they were a thousand years ago.

Thanks Lee.. I put this in file for those times i need to see the good Lords beauty..

You all take care.. On Glorias computer, and my "time" is up.. later to all..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

Thanks Daisy

Sometimes I wonder if I'm wasting time and server space.
If you like 'em, I'll post more.

You ever just plop a folding chair down, pop a cold one, and watch the wind blow across. Looks like a sea of green, waves and all. Serenity, tranquility. Good times.

That was fall of 2010. Dead as a hammer from the drought and heat of last summer now.
I pass through on the way home from the project so, nope, I'm headed home to momma!!

tiny gas station. Station owner was also a farmer & desperate for rain. They'd just had a light sprinkle and he was very upset.
Wind blowing and the skin chaps in a minute plus wind burn.

It can be harsh for sure but them danged high elevations will go from hot to froze in a heartbeat.
Dad likes to tell about being on manuvers out of Ft Bliss and sweating setting up tents in the Davis Mtns. and waking up freezing and the Sgt hollering for everybody to pack up and get ready for the convoy coming to "rescue" them from the Blue Norther that blew in during the night.
No hiking back that trip. LOL!!
