Running Water....Back Road Surprise
Of all the trips I have made on this back road short-cut to town, I never once realized this beautiful spot existed.
I came across it quite by accident, when I stopped to photograph a fence post for this weeks' Friday's Fences.
Looking for a shady spot to park the truck, I stopped just past a small concrete bridge.
That is when I saw the water through all the lush green undergrowth. Click on photo for a closer look.
I'm guessing, the stream provides plenty of water for the vegetation to be so healthy and green. Everything around the area, is drying up in these high temperatures we are having.
On first sight, my imagination took me to another place in time...I wonder if a Lipan Apache or a member of the Tonkawa Indian tribe could have stood in this same spot so many years ago.
Because of the tangled underbrush, it would make a perfect hide-out... a perfect spot to water your horse and take a rest.
As the early morning sunlight danced on the water, it flowed past me, continuing under the bridge.
Don't you just love finding the unexpected in nature.....
