We'd been on the road home for about 2 hours Tuesday when we came over a rise on Rt. 82 between Lubbock and Wichita Falls. I noticed the road ahead winding far off into the distance just as the canyons were coming into view on either side of the road. I pulled off to the side and stepped out to get a shot down the road toward the horizon and after taking several photos as intended, decided to scramble up a small embankment on the south side of the road to see what the view of the canyons "over there" looked like. This is what greeted me. I've read in many places that when you think you've got the shot you're after, turn around and see what's behind you. I'm not unhappy with the shots I took looking down the road -- but this would seem (to me, at least) to be a classic example of the wisdom in that sentiment about turning around.
