Survivor! Davis Mountains State Park

Beautiful adobe staircase at the Indian Lodge.  The Lodge, restaurant and pool were completely untouched by fire.
Building on Skyline Drive adjacent to mountain biking trail saved by park staff and firefighters!
Burned trees with intact grassland below, from Skyline Drive
A blossom from the Park Interpretive Center's garden, just a few feet from the burn line
The view from inside the completely untouched Rock Shelter atop Skyline Drive

We wanted to share more photos from Davis Mountains State Park, which is ready for visitors but won't be open until May 1 because it remains a staging area and tent city for firefighters serving the region since the April 9 wildfire.  Read yesterday's entry for the full story. 

Click here for more images of the park, taken Thursday, April 21.

Updated 4/26/11: because of continuing fire operations in the area, the park and lodge are closed until further notice.  We'll post here as soon as we hear they are reopened!  The rest of Far West Texas and Fort Davis IS open!
