Being of Texan descent, I’ve been to the Lone Star state more times than I can count. Each time, I’ve been underwhelmed by the topography. Back in June, I visited New Braunfels/Gruene area, and was pleasantly surprised by the landscape. Here are a couple of shots that helped me to readjust my views on Texas.
Flower-filled fields & trees with sun-dotted leaves immediately strike me as the perfect place for some summertime magic.
If the name of this blog isn’t an indicator, cacti & cactus blossoms are a favorite of mine. Any place that lets prickly pears run rampant gets a point in my book.
Finally, the rivers & trees. Obviously, rivers & trees both exist in a big way in Portland, but in Texas, these features take on a laid-back summertime vibe that is hard to find up north.
While I don’t think I’ll ever call Texas my home, it was nice to be able to find the beauty in something I’d previously dismissed.
