Many of the smaller towns in Central Texas are tourist destinations. Partly, that’s because of the natural beauty of the rolling hills covered with native trees. Also, those towns have made a concerted effort to draw people with museums, festivals, shopping, and other attractions.
I think most of these trees are cypress.
Stonehenge II is in an open field area. The idea came to Al Shepperd in 1989 when he turned a limestone slab up on end. He and his friend, Doug Hill, decided to construct plaster and graphite covered metal mesh and steel frames to replicate the ancient stones in England.
The land is presently owned by Shepperd’s nephew and is open every day to the public.
Deep red Crape Myrtles line the drive into the parking lot.
