A new year, a new beginning − with New Year’s Eve memories barely fresh on anyone’s mind anymore, it’s still nice to reminisce about memorable times from last year.

One of the features of Texas that our family enjoys is the abundance of trails and wildlife.

Fortunately, that habit stood her in good stead just at dawn one morning as we made our way down the canyon.
