Ann and I will be gone for a few days. We are leaving tomorrow morning, August 17th for Fort Davis, Texas. We getting away from our 100 degree heat for a few days. We will be staying at the Davis Mountains Inn, a bed and breakfast. Our 56th anniversary is Monday the 18th, but we will probably celebrate by doing a little birding and some photography at Davis Mountains State Park.
We are only going to be gone for about three days, but during that time we hope to drive the scenic loop that takes us around the Davis Mountains and near the McDonald’s Observatory. In the past we have been able to see plenty of wildlife and see magnificent mountain scenery. My camera will be ready.
We will be back home here in San Angelo sometime the afternoon of the 20th. Hoping to bring back plenty photos to show you in future posts. In the meantime, here is a recent photo of a Greater Roadrunner. Enjoy.
Congratulations to you both! Hope you have a good time and I’m looking forward to seeing your photos!
