Cow Creek Road




Back roads: we love them.  These pictures were taken off Cow Creek road, a small country road which leads to Flat Creek Winery (in the Texas Hill Country).  I have to admit, I wasn’t really a back roads kinda gal, coming from the big city and all  :), until I met my husband.   Any road trip we would take, he would opt for the back roads, and I mean the back back roads!  Once we followed the map to a back road which turned into a dirt road, did we turn around? No.  This road led us straight through the mountains in southern Colorado,  it was the best drive on our three-week camping trip.  I guess you never know what may be around the next corner, it’s all about perspective.

“When all’s said and done, all roads lead to the same end.  So, it’s not so much which road you take, as how you take it.”  ~ Charles de Lint (Celtic folk musician, 1951)

  5. I love the back roads, it’s amazing what you find as well as what everyone else is missing!!

    I love how the sun is “framing” the second shot by it’s warmth on the branches. Love it!

  8. The tree you see in the second shot on the right, is the tree you see in the first shot on the left. More icicles are in the background blurred. -Kim
