West of the Pecos - Big Bend Country

We left Friedericksburg pretty early this Wednesday morning and drove 223 miles toward West. With these pictures I like to show you the many faces of beautiful Texas. I don't know anymore all the names of the places where we went trough, sorry. Just enjoy the scenes like I did with my camera. Almost all photos are made out from the car.

For the most I liked the sky!

Driving on I-10 down hill between these canyons and after every curve we get presented a new, different and beautiful scenery...

Far in the back there were hills covered with hundreds of wind mills

A typical Texas country scene

Only 66 miles more to our goal for today - and "only" 311 miles more to El Paso :))

For me this looks like a scene out of an old cowboy movie, like many other scenes I have seen today.

Ozona is in Crockett County Texas, named after David Crockett "The back woods man from Tennessee" who died in defending the Alamo and made famous again by Walt Disney in the 1950's.

And this is not a joke! This sign I have photographed somewhere on a resting area - happily there were no snakes around. But, always watch your steps in Texas!

Hi my friends,

Just now we are resting here in the region of "Apache Springs" and we'll be going tomorrow further, probably in direction "Carlsbad" and "Roswell" in New Mexico. Maybe I will capture some (real?) Aliens there?....LOL..... :))

Thanks for all your wonderful comments to my last post! Very much appreciated.

Susanne and David

The countryside is so different, and very cool. Looks quite warm and dry there. Do watch out for those rattle snakes girl!

Hi Sue!
Sorry I couldn’t visit you for the last two weeks! I’m trying to catch-up and see the wonders you have around!
And it seems you're having a superb trip! The pictures are awesome, so the journey must have been fantastic!

Meanwhile, one of the most beautiful Forts in India waits you and your comments at Blogtrotter: – The Amber Fort! Enjoy and have a great weekend!

I loved these because I have never driven in Texas...only flew into Amarillo one year for a conference.
Please take a lot of photos of Area 51, I have read so much about it, I would love to see your photos of the area!!!!
Take care, I enjoy following your blog and photos so much!

The first photo as above have took my attention. I have stole it because of the beauty and the philosophy inserted inside the photo.

I am not sure whether to returned it back or not. Hope you will forgive me.
