Weekly Photo Challenge: Resilient 

This was taken on the Old Maverick Road in Big Bend National Park. I was having a fun drive down the barely improved dirt and gravel road. When you find my Xterra, look above and to the right. If you have the picture on a big enough display, you can see the buildings of Terlingua. The people who live there have to be resilient to withstand the hot, dry summers, the rainy falls, and all the tourists looking for adventure. The desert demands certain skills and much respect to survive in. Some of the locals live completely off the grid, using solar cells for electricity and catchment systems to save rainwater that falls. I will say rainwater tastes so pure.
