Thanksgiving in Texas -- Nov. and Dec. 2010

Day 20, December 03. We spent a nice morning with my sister drinking coffee and walking the dog, then drove all day to Marathon, Texas, which is the last town north of Big Bend. As we pulled into our campsite, we were greeted by three Pyrrhuloxia and five Canyon Towhees -- not a bad start to bird watching in the area. The hand is better overall, but the last two knuckles on my finger have gone a bit numb on the dorsal surface.

True to his form, Jim just couldn't leave the red, yellow, and black things alone. It was just a long-horned beetle, but still -- hasn't he had enough of such colorful creatures?
