Road to the Davis Mountains 1

Davis Mountains State Park

Highway 118 takes you from Alpine to Fort Davis. This straight stretch of road is about 10 miles north of Alpine and takes you into the heart of the Davis Mountains. Each morning after photographing these mountains in west Texas at sunrise, I'd see this sight in my rear view mirror. Finally one morning, the clouds over the rocky summits were too good to pass up. Fortunately, there isn't much traffic out here, and I had enough time to set up this photograph from the center of the road. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
