I thought I would share some pictures taken at some of the local ranches around the Seymour and Albany area of Texas. Many of these pictures are places along the Great Western Trail which was a large cattle trail used to drive cattle to market in the 1800's. There were many Indians that lived in these areas as well as settlers. There were even some cowboys who liked to ride into town and shoot it up on Saturday nights. It probably seems like unbelievable stories but I have read much of the history of the area and they testify that the stories of the wild west are true. These are pictures of places that are common sites to us but I thought you might enjoy some of our local color.
