Some Sights & Sounds of Texas / New Mexico

We designed this blog to share some of the many sights (and sounds if I can get it to work) that we have encountered since we arrived here. 



  video
This is a video of one of our lightning storms.  It was awesome to watch. You can see the lightning but you can hear the rain.

(Sidenote:  The picture of the bats were taken after we left the amphitheater and most of the bats had headed towards the river.  These were just a handful of bats that were lagging behind.  You cannot take pictures of them as they leave the cave entrance.)

video
Eugene took this video inside of Carlsbad Caverns.  There are birds - swallows - that fly around and nest just inside of the mouth of the cave.  This is what they sound like.

I know you have seen these pictures before in earlier blogs.  But I love them.  So you get to see them twice!

Of course, you can't forget the OIL DONKEY - It made Texas famous and many men RICH!
They are everywhere.  In the middle of cotton fields, next to houses, surrounded by pecan trees.  You name it and likely, you'll find a "donkey" there.  The first "gusher" was in Beaumont, TX.  But then it was discovered all over Texas and OIL became a household word!!!

And last but not least:
