This live oak earned its place in history when a famous Texas leader camped under it during the chaotic time between the fall of the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto. The tree is known by a couple of different names — the name of the leader and the name of the historic event taking place at the time.
This location, an important stop for migratory birds, is the oldest national wildlife refuge in Texas and is host to one the largest concentrations of sandhill cranes in North America.
Many of you knew the answer to our first-ever Where in Texas? photo challenge. We received dozens of responses through email, Facebook and written letter. The sandhill cranes in the photo were wading in a shallow lake at Muleshoe National Wildlife Refuge in the Panhandle. Large concentrations of the birds gather there each winter, and reader Rae Logan says that "anyone who has seen this sight will not easily forget it."
