Proto-Pollock

Garner State Park, Texas

I went out camping for a few nights at Garner State Park at the western end of the Hill Country. The park's central point is a big rocky hill named exactly like you'd expect it to be: "Old Baldy." And, in another instance of things happening exactly as you'd expect them to, it was raining the whole time. The weather was nice for keeping the campsites from getting too busy, but was not so nice for dramatic light shows on the cliffs. Nevertheless, the low rain clouds gave a cool moody atmosphere to the whole affair, even turning the base of the cliff into an abstract expressionist painting. Maybe Jackson Pollock visited here when he was a kid. Or maybe sometimes some things just look similar to other things.
