Cane Cholla, Guadalupe Mountains National Park, Texas

Cane Cholla, Guadalupe Mountains National Park, Texas

I kept an eye on this interesting Cane cholla hoping that at some point the light would work for a photograph. After a somewhat cloudy day the sun came out for a short period to highlight the mountains and amazingly enough I was there. The yellow fruit seems to work perfectly with the other colours in the […]

Guadalupe Mountains, Texas

Colourful foliage at Guadalupe Mountains National Park, Texas

Heading back towards New Mexico we decided to stop at Guadalupe Mountains National Park for a few days.

The mountains themselves are spectacular with El Capitan being especially impressive. Unfortunately I didn’t have […]

Everyone from small town individuals to the US Air Force is on the lookout for the unidentified flying objects. The budgets certainly vary quite a bit as can be expected. Take a look at this classic radar dish […]

Diesel Fried Chicken, Texas Style

Diesel Fried Chicken, Van Horn, Texas

This is my first real visit to Texas as I don’t consider flying through Houston a real visit. Heading south from El Paso there are long stretches of nothing, brown grass and more nothing. This isn’t to say that the landscape isn’t pretty but maybe it’s just not my style. Around lunch time I decided […]
