I am going to pass on doing a Bird of The Week feature until after holidays. I have been fighting a cold for a few days and haven’t done any planning. Instead, though, I think I will post a few more photos for you to see. First up is one image that I captured early one morning in the Davis Mountains of west Texas.
This next one is a familiar sight out here in west Texas, where the plains are flat and windy. In the winter those winds blow cold directly out of the north. It is said that there is nothing between here and the Canadian border except a snow fence, and it is laying on the ground. 🙂
Another type of windmill that is starting to appear in greeat numbers are the gigantic wind turbines. They number in the thousands in far west Texas.
And, yes, there is sometimes snow in mountains of west Texas. This blizzard hit while we were visiting in February of 2010. Two days later the snow was gone.
I guess that will be all for today. I must save a few for another time.
I hope you enjoy these photos of west Texas. Click on any image to see an enlargement.
