Mesquita Sunset

Each Spring I ride to these Mesquite blooms on Independence Way (FM 2621) in Washington County. For a couple weeks they light the pasture gold. Bikers training for the annual MS-150 come to this spot from near and far but when the blooms turned gray this year the Earth had lost a great friend near this very spot as she trained for the long ride.

El Niño – Man Of La Pasture

Live Large, Love Larger

Been following him and his progeny for years … El Niño is magnificent, his heifers pretty, if a little wacky. They’re natural born posers. Few animals let you ride-up on a rumbling Harley, dismount, unpack your camera, and fiddle with the settings while they pose for the whole shootin’ match … such is the power of humans bearing molasses. This is superfine riding country with smooth peaceful roads and beautiful views where ranching, nature, and large love hookup.
