Turn the Other Way....

Back in early spring, we headed down to Bulverde, TX, for a soccer game.

Bulverde is a small rural town, north of San Antonio.
That city does seem to be creeping closer and closer, though.

There is still some country left, out where the soccer fields are.

We turned right, instead of left, leaving the fields, 
and came across this little old farmhouse.

The stacked stone fence just called out to be photographed.

But, this old stone building was what first caught my eye.
Was it a house?  Was it a barn?
And, look at that old buckboard wagon.

I'm not sure what it USED to be.
But, it's a keeper now.
Well taken care of...even the same turquoise shutters, as the farmhouse.

You just never know what you'll find, if you just turn the other way.

Cross Over the Bridge...

On our drive up to 
Grand Teton National Park,
we passed under a few of these.

It's a 
Wildlife Bridge.

You see those fences along the sides of the road?
They're pretty tall.  And, they funnel the wildlife...
deer, elk, moose....whatever....
up to the bridge.

These make it safer for the wildlife to cross the road.

Saves many of their lives, and probably many humans' lives as well.

Pretty clever.
