Domestic Travel

Huntsville, 1999


On our way back to Wyoming, we stopped at the Sam Houston statue
near Huntsville to play in the flowers and to see the big sculpture. I was
shooting pictures with my new Minolta digital camera, which as I recall
(possibly incorrectly) was a 2 megapixel unit, if that. Years later, I have
tried to de-pixelate the photos. Here's a brief account of our potty stop.

The statue of Sam Houston is a park unto itself,
purportedly the tallest of its kind in the world. And so,
it really is true that everything is big in Texas.
