This weeks Fly Art entry:

Saltwater Flames

If you listen in over on the Twitters you might now that I am on the tailing end of a 7 day, self-imposed, Social Media vacation. No worries, I’ll be back in full force on Monday morning. I just needed my annual break from the constant barrage of misinformation.

With that in mind… I’m out! Enjoy that pretty picture up there! Did you notice the change to the blog header? Be sure to find all of your Easter Eggs! Most importantly, Thanks for playing along, now GET OUTSIDE and do something fun! 


If you spent any time in the back country, of all most anywhere in Texas, during the months of March and November of 2011, you probably witnessed something similar to the picture below.

The Drought

That picture was taken on a hike on the San Gabriel River, up stream of Lake Georgetown in early October. If the saying is true “that a picture is worth a thousand words” consider it my 1000 word blog post on the extreme drought Texas experienced this year. Which leads me to the purpose of this post…

Today the Texas Parks and Wildlife made a very public call for help! A $4.6 million call for help. SEE TPWD’S PLEA HERE! Due to a record setting heat wave and exceptional drought along with devastating wildfires that caused a drop in park visitation, the TPWD needs $4.6 million to simply keep some of the 94 state parks in Texas open! I’ll let Carter Smith tell the story…

So I ask that you consider making  a small donation to the Texas Parks and Wildlife as part of your holiday giving. Or better yet Get Outside, inside one of the State Parks that needs your help. I also ask that you share this with as many people as possible… I am looking  at my fellow Texas bloggers and Twitter friends!

Thanks for playing along, and as always please Get Outside and do something fun!
