Melinda Gill Black‎ sent us this pic of a wicked Cholla cactus with a delicate bird's nest tucked inside at Big Bend Ranch State Park. My guess is a Cactus Wren. Your guess?

Bravo, Marfa!

Just your typical spectacular sunset taken on Highland Avenue, Marfa's main street. If you haven't experienced a mind-blowing West Texas sunset, you haven't lived!

I should know this by now, or at least not feel a sense of surprise: detours can bring great rewards. Usually we're on a mission and can't be distracted by a simple green sign with an arrow saying, "Historic Marker." Appointments loom, and there isn't time for wandering. And, sometimes a marker seems to direct you to look at nothing, or at something that is no longer there.

The weekend is here. For you: great porches around the region!

Our region is blessed with quiet and a pace of life that's invites a slowing down.  What better way to shed the stresses of the city, than to find a great porch and contemplate the scenery or watch people or critters?  Here's a roll call of some of our favorite porches in the region...but by no means is it an exhaustive list.  Let us know if you've found a favorite of your own!
