Two from Mustang Creek

Revisiting some photo references from Mustang Creek near our home in Waxahachie. The limestone, or caliche, is amazingly white. So white that it looks like snow in a painting unless you include a few clues to tell the brain that it's Summer. Like bright green grass growing along the top of the ravine, an easy solution.

On a historical side note, this area of town was once home to a zoo and a horse racing track in the late 1800s. Today, there is no evidence that either existed, but exploring the creek, I can see how this would be a great location for locals to visit.
