Traveling through the Texas plains and canyons is feast for your eyes and for your camera. During the late afternoons the moisture in the sky is bound up in these billowing clouds leaving the sky a deep cobalt blue.
It’s hard for folks that have never visited Texas to understand just how beautiful our skies are. Being raised in the mirky midwest I never thought I’d see a sky as blue what we have here in Texas, nor clouds so white and fluffy.
If you’re planning a late summer or fall vacation this year or next, keep the Texas panhandle in mind. The folks in Lubbock and Amarillo are friendly beyond comparison. The cost for hotels, food and gas are among the lowest in the nation and plains and canyons are just begging to be explored.
And the Texas sky? Well, you get the picture!
