    Bonus day!

    I keep finding myself drawn back to this fence. Someday I hope I see someone outside and can ask them who the artist is. The panels capture El Paso's history - from the star on the...

    I was trying to capture how pretty this highway is in terms of decorative elements being incorporated into the design. There are several around the city. Why can't we have pretty...

    I rode through there on my cross country ride back in 2016. What a beautiful area (although it was summer when we went through!) Lovely photo!

    Here are some public art pieces along a busy road that goes down to I-10. They light up at night. I think they look like pink olives in cocktail glasses.

    There was no placard to name this sculpture, but ironically it was in front of the Adult Probation building for El Paso County.

    When you're in high desert in the southwest, waterways are hard to come by. Yes, the Rio Grande runs through here forming the southern US border, but in this area it is neither...

    I'm sensing a theme with all these LFL's that NEED children's books. Perhaps time to send out an "ask" for outgrown children's books to be left on people's curbs for you to redistribute?

    Several of the LFL's here are behind locked doors or fences. I agree, it completely violates the spirit of the L FREE L. But, there it is.

    1/21/2022 Coffee

    So pleased they're releasing mom earlier from hospital than they had expected. But it definitely cut into biking time - no complaints - but not many miles either!

    Wow! I saw Chaucer's Mead in the store along with some Irish bottles labeled "meade" ... but the "Made in Texas" mead won out. It turns out to be way too sweet for my taste but I'm glad I tried it.
