The difference between the expeditions covered in this blog post as opposed to those in the past would be the extreme increase in temperature. Looking back at my previous blog post with weather screen shots displaying anywhere from 70-79 degrees makes me long for the weather of my youth….which was like a month ago.
Over the last two months I have watched blue bonnets grow so blue that people flock to photograph themselves and others within in them.
Now the bluebonnets appear faded, at least compared to the red flowers (which I thought were indian paint brush flowers but I’ve been told otherwise). These flowers are so vibrant the state flower pales in comparison.
One must almost strain there eyes to find a bluebonnet among these vibrant flowers who seem to have taken over the fields behind Teresa hall.
My longing for the return of the blue bonnets made me reflect on this quote,
“We all strive for safety, prosperity, comfort, long life, and dullness.”
Perhaps I should embrace the changes the seasons bring instead of long for the same flowers I stared at for months. I wonder why people don’t lay in these new flowers and take photos.
I visited MT. Bonnel recently and it was extremely hot, even walking the stairs I was panting.
Though the view here was extremely green, the area in Blunn Creek I had visited this year had begun to almost crisp in the onset of the intense summer sun.
Basically, I witnessed the cycle of the seasons (at least texas seasons) because of this blog. I entered Blunn Creek when it was mildly hot, found a few days during cooler months when it was just barely 60 degrees and now temperatures usually peak at 93.
It was an interesting experience to actual document how the seasons change a specific area
Alas since this was one of my last documented journeys into nature for this blog, I decided to compile all the different socks I’ve worn in the blog posts so we can reflect over the progression of this blog.
