Sky over Fort Leaton

Framed by adobe walls, skies in Far West Texas are stunners.  Here's the view from Fort Leaton State Historic Site, near Presidio.

Operated by Texas Parks and Wildlife, their website says this about the Fort: "In 1848, Ben Leaton built a fortified adobe trading post known as Fort Leaton. He dominated border trade with the Apache and Comanche Indians before he died in 1851."

Visitors to the site, can see a fortified adobe structure and museum exhibits outlining the history of the area.
