The flint quarry at Alibates is very old, and was mined for high quality trading flint for hundreds of years. You can see it only on a tour with a National Park employee (the tours are free). It's remote, but a journey in spring means blooming yuccas across the craggy landscape.
I am a keen amateur photographer, an avid traveler, a dedicated researcher. My main area of interest is the European middle ages although I like history and culture, especially social history, of all eras and regions. I am especially fond of good architecture and I am really, really fond of reptiles.
I usually post this blog to share highlights from my travels with family and friends. If you are a potential friend wandering by, you are welcome; any of my art or nature images posted here are available for non profit personal or study use, and if reproduced I ask that I be credited as photographer.
