watch the weather change...

----------

Lake Altus and the Quartz Mountains, an oasis on the prairie... you can see on the mountains where the water level used to be. In fact, water used to come all the way up to where I was standing. with two years of exceptional drought it's 26 feet below normal with the conservation pool only at 18%

watch the weather change...


also from this sojourn

there's a reason why the bison and native americans migrated on these plains.

glad you enjoyed Twiggy!

I want to say they are 2,000 ft or so... 600 something meters?

they're very old and very worn down.

Twenty-six below level?! :omg: That's hella. I love the view very much, would be pretty setting to see in person; but a bit disconcerting due to drought.

Yeah...there are times for the big view, and times for focusing on the details. It's the well rounded way. You know...the way of the simple man or a donut. One of those two. ;)

I am sugary sweetness, content in my circular yeasty existence.
Counting my sprinkles, minding my own business while pondering the vagaraties of life and human existence UNTIL some bum grabs me up and then...well...I'm just a donuthole ghost talkin' right now and reliving that terrible painful end is more than should be expected. Let's just say I might be gone but I won't be forgotten!! (One cavity and cellulite...I SHALL BE REMEMBERED.)

Interesting landscape. I wish the saturation was pushed a tiny bit more so the very green parts really become vivid, otherwise it's a lovely composition
