Alleyton C.S.

This historical marker at the old Alleyton location on FM 102 just off of IH10 east of Columbus. Took me a minute to figure out C.S.A. is Confederate States of America. I should have gotten a straight on photo to make it easier to read but you should be able to read it.

Saw a nice Peterbilt at a stop light in Refugio, Texas along US 77. I had been getting fuel and looked up to see this nice truck stopped at the light.

Brazos River

This is a view of the old highway bridge across the Brazos River near Brazoria, Texas. The new bridge is now being used but the old structure still stands there.

This field of ripe and ready for harvest cane is close to Tynan, Texas along FM 359.

Port Lavaca Country

Northbound on US 87 a few miles from Port Lavaca. Nothing special, just a beautiful spring day in Texas. 

Mt Rushmore?

A trucker with a taste for Mt Rushmore trucking along a Texas highway recently.

Blooming Mesquite

Mesquite trees blooming in the spring. 

Spring Along FM 966 near Shiner

A double view (north and south) of spring coming to Texas along FM 966 between Shiner and Petersville. 

Sunrise on Interstate 10

I caught this on a recent morning cruising toward Houston on IH10. I like how I caught the round rising sun under the bridge.

Wrightsboro Historical Marker

This sign marks the community of Wrightsboro, Texas on Farm to Market Road 108 between Smiley, Texas and Gonzales, Texas. It is not the booming place it used to be at one time. There is a lot of interesting history in the small communities all over Texas. 

This next picture is looking east from the sign along FM 108 in Wrightsboro. Peaceful rural community. 

This is the view from the sign looking north along FM 108. 

And now the view to the south of the community of Wrightsboro, Texas .  Didn't see any burros roaming the community the day these pictures were taken (March 10, 2013)

A tree loaded with mistletoe. Apparently mistletoe is a parasite and will eventually kill the tree. Apparently not what happens when you hang some in your house and stand underneath it. 

Texas Vineyard

Far as I know this is the only vineyard in Lavaca County Texas close to Shiner, Texas

Country Road

This is along a little country road several miles from my house.

Texas in February

Springtime is a bit slower coming to Texas this year but it is on its way in spite of the blizzards in North Texas.   This is looking west along Texas 111 looking toward Pearl City.
