Texas Forts Trail II.

More images of our trip:

Ends of 19th c. log cabin in Buffalo Gap. According to the museum, there were at some point 2 adults and 6 children living in it.

Ft. Chadbourne, between Abilene and San Angelo. The fort is on a private property on a working ranch, and had been in the hand of the same family for six generations.

Ft. McKavett, south of San Angelo, and its morning sky. It was called 'the prettiest post in Texas' when functioning. The site certainly is beautiful and very quiet.

Ft. Mason, the last fort of our trail, and its commanding view of the surrounding countryside.

Wow, looks like you had a really good time. The weather looks gorgeous and the scenery so peaceful.

Oh, it was way prettier than the pictures, If we keep doing these roadtrips, I would really need a new, more serious camera with better zoom and lens strength.

A long travel south of there was Fort Inge in Uvalde. My father's family settled in the area in the 1860's after fighing in the revolution (and many were killed there as well). My mother's side of the family has a commanding officer at Fort Bliss in El Paso around 1900.

The settlement of the area pushed right along with these Forts, for better or worse.

It also makes family tree's a bit difficult - as none of my father's side of the family had birth certificates/marriage records for over 100 years.
