I should've written this several days ago.

But I was floating on a pink cloud of happiness after getting home from a road trip. Amazing how getting outside of your comfort (or discomfort?) zone can change everything.

I took a photo trip to Big Bend National Park in deep south Texas. This state that I live in has such diverse landscapes, so I'll just start there.

The wildflowers in much of Texas were part of a beautification program started by Lady Bird Johnson, wife of LBJ. Everyone makes such a big deal a out the bluebonnets, but the yellow, red, and orange flowers were more beautiful, in my opinion.

One of our first stops was near Austin at a place called Enchanted Rock. It was full of succulents.

Indian Paintbrush was one of my grandmother's favorite flowers.

This was actually on the way home, between Sanderson and Fredericksburg.

This, my friends, is a glimpse of Big Bend. This place is special to me for so many reasons. I spent much time in prayer and just quiet meditation here. Much good happened in my soul.

I'll be sharing more photos soon. These were all taken on my phone, but I have hundreds more to upload and develop. This trip was big for me. I didn't even realize how badly I needed it.
