I have been fortunate to say that I have visited the Big Bend area of Texas for many years now. I have been fascinated by the history of the area. I have watched the changes accumulate over the years. I have enjoyed the wide open spaces, learned a few of the landmarks, delighted in watching the wildlife, and, I have marveled at the sunrises and sunsets that are second to none. But, most of all, I love to visit this rugged, sparsely populated area of Texas to make new memories, and perhaps a few good images, as souvenirs until the next visit.
I recently created a photo book that included images from my many visits to the Big Bend area. Since I just worked on curating the images for the book, it is fresh on my mind and I thought it would be fun to “explore” the area with you all today. As for the visual part of our Wednesday Wandering, I thought I would share an image I included in the book, as well as a link to the preview of the book.
This image of a rather battered and bruised windmill is one of my favorite images from the region. Some days, don’t you just feel like how this windmill looks? For those days that you feel battered, broken, about to fall… you get yourself all patched up and lean into the wind. Buck up buttercup, because the sunset view is coming.
If you are interested in seeing a few more images from the book I mentioned; HERE is the link. I hope you enjoy the “virtual” trip. If you have any tips for favorite places to stay, hike, and/or take photos, I would love to hear from you. Be sure to leave me a comment before you strap on your virtual hiking boots.
