Red meets Yellow…Kill a fellow

October 27, 2014  |  Outdoors  |  Comments Off on Red meets Yellow…Kill a fellow

Red Meets black…Friend of Jack…The Old Rhyme to help identify the venomous Coral Snake which you can see a lot of in Texas if you keep your eyes open.. I whispered this rhyme to myself as I got just a little to close to this guy on the trail near the Colorado river.. the habitat was perfect.. nice warm waters.. long grass.. unsuspecting prey like me running around…

Yep…Red meets Yellow…

Typically pretty reclusive.. a good sighting of the real thing and I am glad they only bite as a last resort

A Colorado River

October 24, 2014  |  Outdoors  |  Comments Off on A Colorado River

Texas has its Colorado river and it makes a long trip from west Texas to the Gulf coast bringing water to a lot of key cities.. but it could never be confused with The Colorado River which is the life blood of the West.. and rolls through so many great places.. The Texas version does provide some wonderful Paddling trails and great little Day beaches like this one near Bastrop.

First up was the Cottonwood Kings trail, which got its name from the massive cottonwood trees lining the bank of the Colorado river..Saw a nice swallow tail butterfly also!

Took these shots on the Shield Ranch in Western Travis county.. but they make me think of a HOT summer day in central Texas, up in the hill country on the Savannah, walking along in 101 degree heat.. just having a great day!
