  • Lost in LaRue

    After having been given a tip on the possibility of a unique photo, which I’m somewhat ashamed to say took me a couple weeks to follow up on, I found myself traveling toward Magnolia. The drive there was a little rainy and I was worried because I didn’t know if I’d be able to get a photo without stepping in the tall grass. I didn’t have my muck boots, which is really unfortunate for the predicaments I get myself in sometimes.
