Went home to Alpine Texas to visit my folks and hoping to get some Aoudad hunting done but plans for hunting were nixed due to several fires around the hunting area and the 30 plus mile an hour winds did not help. Here are some pictures, these are about 24 miles from where my folks live. This is a night picture of another fire started by lightning. At the lower right you will see a dome structure which happens to be the McDonald's observatory in Fort Davis Tx. which is about 30 miles from where my folks live. By this time more than twelve thousand acres had burned but was hard to contain fire due to winds. After a couple of days the winds died and fire was contained. We decided to postpone the hunting until September when I will see my folks again.
