where the highway cuts through almost ranch country,
not quite there yet,
and it's not very pretty right here
but there's a pear tree in full bloom
on either side of this image,
big white round things by the side of the road,
not yet dropping any blossoms.
I just held up my camera,
driving, not looking, and fired off a round.
There's a lot of sky
and this area is gonna be hot, hot, hot
no trees for shade,
you'll have to walk way back
to that treeline for some relief from the heat,
back where's there's probably a creek or a pond
and you'll have to decide which is worse.
I will opt for unrelenting sun
over unrelenting mosquitoes
any day of the week.
And watch out for snakes.
