Stopping to look at the view on Rim of the World Highway.
My Old Back Yard
Twin Peaks, CA
in back of the tower. Strawberry peak is a gorgeous place to hike.
(These are beautiful...but the best are when the Yarrow is
blooming...the smell is amazing!)
When I told people here in Texas I was from California, I'd often get asked, "Aren't you happy to be out of there?"...as if it were a place I should have liked to flee from. I don't think they realized what I'd left.
Back then I was so homesick for these mountains. I've grown comfortable with Texas now and don't often long for California like I used to...but being in Twin Peaks this past week felt like home in a way that I don't know if Texas ever will.
