A Drive in the Country

Texas landscape is different depending on what part of Texas you are in. East Texas is full of towering pine trees. It is green here year round. Yesterday we took a drive through the Davy Crockett National Forest. There is a maze of dirt roads that wind throughout miles of forest land.

Let the Journey Begin.

Beautiful purple wildflowers were growing everywhere.

An old Barn.

A Bull lounging under a tree.

A small pond in the middle of a pasture.

There was a wooden cross in the middle of nowhere. This was an unusual find.

A cluster of mushrooms growing on a dead tree stump.

Do you see the goat? He has a white body and brown head.

Dead trees have so much character with their twisted branches.

A dry creek bead. There were a lot of those. The land still hasn’t recovered from the drought last year.

We stumbled across a whole bunch of butterflies enjoying the nectar of wildflowers.

Pretty little yellow wild flowers.

I loved the tree bending across the road.

Some old barns off the road.

Some of the towering pine trees that cover East Texas.

    So pretty! I, too, like the crooked tree bending over the road. I also love the first photo… there’s just something so inviting about a dirt road lined with trees, isn’t there?
