Sharing my adventures in the Colorado mountains in the summer, and beautiful Ft. Worth Texas in the winter.

We have been in Austin taking care of our little granddaughter, Hannah. When we have time, we enjoy driving the back roads and staying away from the freeway.
That is where we discovered the small town of Meridian, Texas, population around1400. Above is the county courthouse, built in 1886 (restored in 2007). Meridian is the county seat of Bosque County. The county was settled by Spanish explorers, and the name in Spanish means forest or woods. I thought it was interesting that the Bosque country of Spain and southern France is pronounced "bask", while this county in Texas is pronounced "bah skee".
How could one persons life be so different from winter to summer? Well stick around and see. I live in a cosmopolitan city half of the year and then head to a tiny town in the mountains the other half.....a place full of interesting people, beautiful scenery, wild animals......and great adventures!
