Texas Wildflowers

We spent a couple of days at a COE campground at Hords Creek Lake in central Texas.  We were very pleased to find a wonderful display of wildflowers.  There was both a large number of flowers and a wide variety of different flowers.  Since most of these were unfamiliar to me, and I haven't had the time and energy to try to identify them, this post will just contain a lot of flower images.














































Also a juvenile Bluebird


And a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher

Abiquiu, New Mexico

We spent a few days meeting some friends at a Corps of Engineers campground on Lake Abiquiu in north-central New Mexico.  While we were there, we spent part of a day visiting Ghost Ranch (made famous by Georgia O'Keefe) and nearby Echo Amphitheater.

Just a couple of miles up the road from Ghost Ranch, we visited a natural amphitheater named Echo Amphitheater.

We thought these fallen blocks looked like they had been cut out.
