Last weekend, I took a quick road trip with my Dad to Lubbock, Texas to visit a friend. On the way back, my Dad was patient enough to stop on the highway and make U-turns for me to take photos of the West Texas landscape. Dodging tumbleweeds and washing the red dirt off your car is usually the norm for a trip west, but an unusual amount of rain as brought desert plants into bloom and the red soil is hardly visible. I hope you enjoy this photo essay of the West Texas landscape.

    It looks so wild and untamed and fascinating! Lovely photographs.

      It is even more wild and untamed when it is dry. Thank you!

    That wind turbine could be in rural Northern France; there were a few of them. The USA’s countryside’ reminds me of the wide open spaces of the Australian Outback and New Zealand ‘s Tangaroa National Park and Central Otago. Nothing beats open spaces to enjoy a road trip!

      Oh that’s interesting. I like them in the sense they are doing good for the world, but I think they kind of ruin the landscape. It was a great fast trip.

    It’s been years since I’ve driven that stretch of road. Always thought it was quite beautiful. Especially when it had the vibrant green patches. Nice photos!

      It had been many years for me too. The green was a nice surprise this time as usually I always saw it very dry. Thanks!
