I am going to rotate days of posting the rest of the vacation story and pictures...so tonight I will share the first few pictures, cause frankly this girls gotta get some beauty sleep for work tomorrow! oh and for those requesting pics of the author...those, my friends, will be posted on the finality of this vacation series. Cruel, aren't I!
Here we go...
the 'LOVE PONIES' (that one on the right is ALL male).
This next shot is a very small portion of the "Quality Beef Products" just outside of Amarillo. The refreshing scent that only thousands of cattle can bring, permeates the nasal membrane of even the most congested sinus!
The next site was the "GIANT" cross and here is a unique pic we caught as the sun slipped behind this massive structure...and I posterized it slightly.
This second picture is me at the base looking up the cross, just to show perspective and size.
and of course...who could forget the "HOLY TICK!" site.
What evil lurks even at the cross sign! Giant Deer Ticks! Here's the closest pic I could find of what it looked like...my mom of course told me I should have burned it to ensure it's death...I'm telling you it's a good thing I don't smoke anymore because I would have set that car on fire!
Mine looked like the 2nd from the left. Still gives me the heeby-jeebies! Stop laughing at me! Look at your pinky fingernail and imagine a tick half the size of that nail on your leg...just looking for some "skin" to snuggle in and start sucking your lifeblood direct from the source! LECHHHHH!
The next stop, was to capture this somewhat scary look at the entrance to the "Land of Enchantment". It doesn't look like much til you get in further...afterall it's just a bit of desert with scrub brush. I'll just let you use your imagination (unless you've seen it yourself) and I'll save Albuquerque pics for a few days so you can just pause with me and thank God for vacation and in wonderment of why he would create ticks?
Blessings on this Memorial Day! Have a wonderful evening.
