Hey Yall

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. During the off season we get busy with the construction side of our business, and have been really goin strong. The weather has been so nice out here at the Frio River, with cool nights and sunny days. But we really could use some of those showers that were so plentiful during this past summer. It's cracklin dry out here. We've been workin over in Reagan Wells, west of Uvalde on the Nueces, way up in Roaring Springs near Camp Wood, and of course, right here in beautiful "downtown" Concan.

Can't imagine why these guys are so nervous. After all, H.E.B. is only 20 miles from here, and they're already cleaned.

I took these two pictures this morning from a ridge in Roaring Springs, while traveling to visit with a customer(Hey Thad). The fog was thick as pea soup from Concan to Leakey. Then, as I topped the mountains west of Leakey on RR337, it lifted. Actually, it didn't "lift", it was just that I had driven high enough where I was above the fog. Really cool!!
Hill Country....yeah right. Climb one of em, then tell me it's a hill.
We would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Be safe in your travels, enjoy the closeness of family and friends, and may God bless.

'07 Deja Vu

Hey Guys.
Already November, but it seems like just the other day when I took these shots this summer at the Frio River.
Some are of ones on old posts, and some you haven't seen.
The reports from Lost Maples is that the trees are all changing colors, so now's the time to get out here to see some beautiful fall foliage. We're probably going this week, and of course, we'll take plenty of pictures.

Remember the flood on June 26? This was below Neal's Store on Tx127

Shut In Falls after a heavy rain. We had a lot of em, didn't we?

A busy afternoon at Bunk Falls

A common sight this summer in the canyon
Just downriver from Comanche Crossing

These guys made it look easy goin over Bunk Falls!
That's it for now, goodnight. FrioMan
