Maybe you have noticed that I have not been a very active blogger lately. Even if you haven't noticed, I haven't been very active. I spent a few days at ERE West in San Diego which I will report on in a subsequent blog. But right after that I went for a wonderful respite in the desert--Texas' Big Bend country and Big Bend National Park.
If you've never been there I highly recommed it. It always recharges my batteries. Big Bend National Park is 850,000 acres of desert surrounding the Chisos mountains in west Texas. It is some of the most amazing open spaces you can imagine. The vistas are incredible, and yet it's one of the--if not the--least visited national parks. It is pretty far off the beaten path.
In the spring, between March and May, the desert blooms in varying degrees depending on moisture over the winter. This year was a particularly good winter so the bloom is awesome. The cactus pictured in this blog is the Claret Cup which blooms at altitudes over 4000 feet. This is the first time I've seen it in bloom and it is spectacular.
All in all, the trip was awesome, and did a great job of recharging me. Big Bend always seems to have that effect on me.
So what does any of this have to do with talenteering? Absolutely nothing! But it does help to explain where I've been for the last week or so. Big Bend is pretty primitive country, so I was without high-speed (or low-speed for that matter) Internet or cellular phone coverage. Hmmm--maybe that's why I'm feeling relaxed and recharged :-) At any rate I'm now back in civilization so I thought I'd share some of the grandeur. Hope you enjoy it.
I'll be back to talenteering soon.
