I was up and at 'em this morning. It seems lately that afternoon rains, toddlers and work have interupted my daily photo taking. This morning I saw clouds resting in the Valle so I set out to find where the morning light breaks. The time was 7:45 am. I made the 7 mile loop covering DeWitt Barnett Rd, Baird's Creek and Broadstone. My strategy: Go up until the light begins to change. With luck and a wee bit of patience, I may happen upon a photo opportunity. This morning there were several. These two photos, the first of the Mast Store Annex from a nearby field and the Cooper's barn were the last images from my photo trek. They were taken about 10 minutes apart at approximately 9 a.m. when the last of the fog was lifting.
And it seems, Valle Crucis has always been popular with the tourists, even 10,000 years ago.
