I met two young ladies from the great state of Colorado this afternoon and we got to talking about the weather here (hot & humid) as compared to there (cool & dry) and the scenery here (flat, flat, FLAT) compared to there (mountains, aspen trees, clear rivers), etc, etc, etc. You get the point.
Then I explained that Texas was home to some of the largest and most beautiful canyons in the US and they just rolled their eyes thinking “this old man’s been in the sun way too long”. So I grabbed my iPod Touch and opened this shot taken from the western rim of Caprock Canyons just a few weeks ago. In my best East Texas accent I said “That’s in the Texas Panhandle, Y’all”.
So they rolled their eyes again . . .
