Man vs. Mountain

Remains of officer's quarters at Fort Davis in the Davis Mountains, far west Texas.

When the bricks are dust, the mountains will stand.

We were there just last fall but didn't get any pictures nearly this good. It is a haunting place.

It would be no surprise to see John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara striding from behind that building.
A beautiful shot.

I guess ashes to ashes, dust to dust might apply to all our man crafted efforts as well to our selves....

Helps to have the larger perspective pointed towards on occasion - thanks for sharing!
