Photos are not allowed on the tours. Too bad. The Guadalupes through the 12 foot steel doors are something to behold.

The guy also has a feminine persona. He beautifully decorated a children's hospital in El Paso with wall and ceiling murals.

If you paste the coordinates, you may just slightly miss seeing it. The house is, very approximately, 1/4 mile north.

Default Texas Shaped Pool at Texas Motor Speedway

Several passengers that I've given rides to over the years say they enjoyed seeing it.

You can contact KAFW tower on 135.15 and request a clockwise orbit of the speedway at 2000'. The pool is on the south end of the track at the hotel.

Copy/paste 33.031526, -97.280344 into GoogleMaps.

[quote=n5lp;1047137]Culberson County, Texas is sneaky interesting...




Quick, someone grab Marty McFly's time machine. I can see a History Channel special 500 years from now saying this was some sort of ancient Texan Stonehenge type structure.

Not an aerial photo but one you might want to check out in the future.

The story behind them is quite interesting and still a bit of a mystery.

Georgia Guidestones near Elberton, GA (granite capitol of the south).
