Nature Trails Near Athens Texas

#TexasNewsBlog #TexasNews #TexasBlog



If you've never been to East Texas, you need to travel there someday and when you do be sure to check out Athens Nature Trails. As you can see in the picture above, these trails are filled with beautiful flowers and trees. Athens Texas is located about 80-miles from the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex on Highway 31. If you're coming from Central Texas a good way to get there is to take the Highway 84/31 exit off of I-35 in Waco toward Corsicana. It's a beautiful drive and well worth the trip.

From Grapes To Wine Texas Hill Country

#TexasNewsBlog #TexasNews #TexasBlog



Did you know that there are some fine wines grown from grapes right here in the State of Texas? If you visit the Hill Country they are easy to find. I must admit I am not as fond of wine as an ice cold beer, but there are Texans who are experts on such things and they tell me that some of the wines that come from Texas are pretty good.

Texas Panhandle 'Supercell' June 22, 2014

#TexasNewsBlog #TexasNews #TexasBlog



I'm old enough to remember plenty of these back in the 1960's and 1970's. A few turned into tornadoes in Lubbock, Wichita Falls and a small community near Clarendon called 'Sherwood Shores ' now known as Howardwick. The funny thing about Mother Nature is - something that looks so beautiful from afar turns out to be not pretty at all, up close and personal.

Beautiful Texas White Rock Border Sign

#TexasNewsBlog #TexasNews #TexasBlog



When leaving or entering Texas via Mexico, thousands of people see the image above as they make their way down the highway. This image is only one of dozens that greet visitors entering Texas or as a goodbye and come back soon message to folks leaving. Whether it be on a fence, home or used to construct a sign in the shape of Texas. I love the look of white rock and every time I see it used, it reminds me of my Lone Star State home.

Farm With Big Trees, Bluebonnets & Barn

#TexasNewsBlog #TexasNews #TexasBlog



Like many other Texans, I grew up in a small town and worked during the summer months on a farm. Maybe that is why I still love looking at pictures like the one above even though I left my rural roots many decades ago. For me, it is very relaxing looking at a picture of an old farm with big trees, bluebonnets and an old barn weathered by time. This picture brings back so many great memories.
