Here's a view to the southwest. The hills in the far distance are about halfway to San Antonio from here. Also in that direction is the closest cell tower, 5 miles away.A view to the south. The ridge in the background is several miles the other side of the Medina River. A cool refreshing place to be in the summer!
Partway down our road. It's about 1/10th of a mile to the pavement. It cuts down through layers of limestone and caliche, and is nearly impossible to keep graded because of it. The rough road and the gate at the bottom do help to keep the riff-raff out, though.
A view due north. In contrast to the balance of the hill, this side is all cactus and cedar breaks. Turkeys, armadillos, deer, and rabbits and other edible treats abound here.
A look towards the utilitarian northwest. Here you can see more cedar, the curve of the well house, the odd blue pyramid and the ubiquitous pipe rack.
It's views like that which keep me living here and working there. Here's to hoping all of us can take some time and appreciate what we have been given. The secret to happiness is simple - rather than having what you want, want what you have.
