We awoke to 19o temperatures and frost on our Jeep this morning.
Shortly thereafter, we entered the west Texas oil patch and a forest of Jack oil well pumps together with the electrical infrastructure to support them and tanks to store their production
Amid the oil and gas production, we were surprised at the enormous acreage dedicated to cotton growing.
But, fossil energy is only part of the West Texas energy mix.
North of Midland, the landscape transitioned to farm and pasture land for Thoroughbreds and cattle
The day had its downside, however, when a large gravel truck passed us on a back road and kicked up several stones which impacted hard on the windshield of our motorhome. Now, I need to get the “dings” repaired, hopefully in the next two days.
