Emil is the winner in this month’s contest of “Where’s Mary?” He responded correctly that I was in Uvalde, Texas, at a display of artifacts from Ft. Inge. Well, he’s right, but the dragon is not from Ft. Inge. It used to be on top of the Janey Slaughter Briscoe Grand Opera House, but during renovations several years ago, the original smoking dragon was put on display in the Opera House, along with materials from the abandoned U.S. Army post, Ft. Inge. A replica dragon now tops the building. Read about how to see the Opera House, the remains of Ft. Inge, where to eat and where to stay in my new travel guide coming out in Spring 2017. Look for From the Frio to Del Rio: Travel Guide to the Western Hill Country and Lower Pecos Canyonlands wherever books are sold.
Emil will receive a free copy of Peyote Fire: Shaman of the Canyons, my novel about the ancient Lower Pecos. Watch for the next edition of “Where’s Mary?” coming soon. Play and win a free book! Thanks to everyone who ventured a guess on this one, and be sure to enter again!
