Good Fences #85

2015 has been a year of trips both long and short.  Thought I would share a few fences from a September trip to Missouri and Oklahoma.  These particular scenes are from south of Lawton, Oklahoma in a rich soil farming and ranching area.

The sight of the truck stirring up a cloud of dust took me back to the country roads of my youth.

Be sure to take time to drop on over to the Run ‘A” Round Ranch Report for this week’s fences.

San Gabrial Park

 

It has been a beautiful week even though the temperatures remain in the high 90’s and 100 degrees F.  A few scattered showers have been just a beginning of what is needed as lake levels continue to recede.  The following photos were taken in the San Gabriel water shed park in Georgetown, Texas.  This small city is home to Southwestern University, a private university dating back to 1840.

The pecan and oak trees are easily 100′ tall.  Add in cypress and cottonwood reaching those same heights and you have a majestic little park.

 For our friend at Good Fences Thursday I give you these fences captured on the way back home.  If  you look closely in the center distance of the photo you see a rise with buildings sitting there.  That is the hill on which I live.

It is Texas, there will be cattle.  Notice the suburbs in the background.
