It is interesting how the midday sun creates such powerful shadows down here. The long branches reaching across the road grabbed my eye. This again is what I pictured Texas to look like before moving down here. From the long, endless road to the wide open fields. It surprises me how green everything still is at the end of January. Never surprising how quickly the landscape can go from suburban to this down here.
For my birthday this past December I received a state parks pass, so we decided to head over to the nearest Texas state park and check out Cedar Hill State Park. It was nice to be out in 70 degree January weather. The trails were quite nice and I can only imagine how wonderful it must look in the seasons where everything is green (will surely be back to check it out).
