Weekly Photo Challenge: Favorite Place

In case you haven’t guessed, I have a couple of favorite places. The first is in or near Big Bend National Park. I feel like I’m coming home when I get there. We hope to spend some retirement years living there.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silence

We visited Big Bend again during Christmas and one day I had to myself, I went into the park to walk the Burro Mesa pouroff trail. I pretty much had it to myself. It was quiet, I only heard one bird singing. My tinnitus is bad enough that it’s all I could hear besides the bird. I found an app for my phone that measures decibels, I opened it and the volume level was at 28 decibels.
