To Bastrop we did go

with 24 comments

For the first time since the spring, on September 23rd we drove 45 miles southeast to Bastrop State Park. One reason for going there at this time of year was the expected flowering of several plants that don’t grow in Austin. Among them are two species of Liatris, including the Liatris aspera, rough blazing-star, shown here. Below is a closeup of one flower cluster.

I recommend Jonathan Haidt’s new essay about how monomania makes groups illiberal and stupid.
