West Texas Mountain Scenery
Some parts of Texas are flat. Others aren't. Just a bit more than two weeks ago, on Saturday, Sept. 12, 2009, I drove more than six hundred miles, traveling west from Kerrville to El Paso, Texas, and on northward to Truth or Consequences and Elephant Butte, New Mexico. These snapshots were taken from about fifty miles west of Fort Stockton, Texas, looking to the south.
