Focus on Texas: Miles and Miles of Texas

Come along as we explore, from the coast to the mountains and even through the West Texas town of Miles

Beaches, mountains, plains, swamps and deserts—Texas has it all. From the Panhandle to the Mexican border, there’s plenty to see and do. Let’s check out what Texas has to offer.

Terri Carter, Rita Blanca EC: “Approaching Coldwater Draw on Highway 119 in Sherman County on a frosty winter morning.”

Michael Lanty, Concho Valley EC: “This old tractor is a fixture in Miles.”

Kay Bell, Nueces EC: “Getting up early at Big Bend leads to beautiful sunrises. This shot was taken from Dugout Wells in Big Bend National Park.”

Web Extra: Pat McNabb, Lea County EC: “I was coming home from work on Highway 82, and it had just rained. The wet road and beautiful rain at sunset made for a great picture.”

Web Extra: Currie Smith, BTU: “On our flight back from a fishing trip in Port Mansfield, I took this photo of the Land Cut. The Land Cut is a 20-mile-long channel that was built through the Saltillo sand flats to provide a shipping route between the upper and lower Laguna Madre. The photo shows two barges in the Land Cut as we were flying over.”

Web Extra: Kyle Williams, United Cooperative Services: “Just southwest of Granbury, an afternoon storm broke out through the sunshine.”
