Rachel is our winner for August! She correctly identified ‘sky scrappers’ as missing from this photo of Barton Springs taken several years ago. Yes, progress marches on, but at least we still have our sacred swimming hole. Stay tuned for another picture in “Where’s Mary?” and play again in September.
No one responded correctly for the last photo posted in “Where’s Mary?”, but here’s another one to try. This photo was taken a few years ago in Austin. The question is “What’s Missing?” The first person to give the correct answer in the comments section below wins a free, autographed copy of Peyote Fire: Shaman of the Canyons.
You’ll find the location of the mural below in my new travel guide From the Frio to Del Rio: Travel Guide to Southwest Texas, which comes out in April, 2017, from Texas A&M Press. I got samples of the pages last week, and they are beautiful, thanks to the designer at A&M, and my great photographers. I hope to get the proofs in mid-September.
