Carousel Mountain, Big Bend, Texas
I’ve been trying some new subject matter, and this one is a real departure for me. My dear friend, Mary Grace Bartoo, provided me with some photos from a trip to Big Bend National Park in far west Texas. Being a real glutton for punishment, I chose this one to try first. I figured I may as well push myself a little. This is Carousel Mountain, in the Chisos Mountains, near the Texas-Mexico border. It was the unusual shape that grabbed me. Easy to see how it got its name.
