Since my "This is Texas" entry seems to be bulging at the seams making it a loading nightmare for many people, I am going to reorganize it into 5 sections. I will start putting photos into their respective regions, and in Texas that would have to be at least 5. East, West, North, South and Central.

West Texas includes the High Plains area in the north and extends down into the Davis Mountains and Big Bend area to the south.

El Capitan (jkenny3)
I've been to Guadalupe Mountains National Park several times, but since this was my wife's first trip, I turned the camera over to her. This is El Capitan, at the southern end of the Guadalupe Mountains in West Texas.

Texas Autumn (jkenny3)
This picture was taken in McKittrick Canyon during peak foliage color, which normally happens around the last week of October. The Bigtooth Maples thrive in the canyon, in spite of its location in the middle of the west Texas desert. The Park is actually very close to Carlsbad Caverns National Park across the border in New Mexico.

Drought At The Red River (Sadie791)
No rain since November has left very little water in this fork of the Red River near Clarendon, Texas.

Taurus Mesa II (Shasper)
It's not the Grand Canyon and it's not Utah, not even Big Bend, but it has its own beauty.
