WHERE IN TEXAS?
Many readers recognized this site the minute they laid eyes on it. Distinctive spires and boulders cover the hillside about Fort Davis National Historic Site in the Davis Mountains of West Texas. The frontier military fort was established in 1854 to protect travelers on the San Antonio — El Paso Road. Reader Sharon Kopesky says she lived across from the fort in 1975 and awoke to the sound of reveille playing each morning. Jan and Lonnie Hobbs have visited the historical fort several times — often camping at Davis Mountains State Park — and "thoroughly enjoy the history lesson and the feeling of being there where it all happened."
