Week of February 4, 2013

Texas writer, poet, reciter and chuckwagon cook Linda Kirkpatrick shares sunrise photos from the Texas Hill Country near her home in Leakey, taken in January, 2013: 


"Red Sky at Morning" on the Frio River


"Morning on the Frio," at the location where the inspiration for "Rose of the Frio" grew. I wrote "Rose of the Frio" and Jean Prescott added the chorus and set it to music. It made a great song.

 


"Morning on the Frio"


"Sunrise at Garner State Park" (Linda Kirkpatrick is the manager of the Visitors Center at the park).


Fire on the Mountain (southwest side of Saddle Mountain)


And, just for fun, a photo Linda titled "Blizzard, 2013," taken on January 4. They don't see much snow in her country:

Week of January 28, 2013

Sixth-generation rancher and poet Rusty McCall shares some photos from the McCall's New Mexico ranch, taken January 3, 2013.


Daughtery Flats

Poet, writer, and rancher Deanna Dickinson McCall describes the photos:

Rusty brought the camera along when he and I went to take care of the cattle on this winter day. We covered about 10 miles that day chopping ice and feeding cake and hay. We keep the two types of cattle we raise on different areas of the ranch, the Corrientes on the steeper forest, and the Brangus on less rough ground.

Chopping Ice


Angus on the feed grounds
