Doors, windows and a helluva view

After arriving at the Mariscal Mine, the first thing I did was get to work making lunch.  While lunch was cooking, I took advantage of my time and hunted for views around the ruins at the base of the Mariscal Mine.  It was pretty easy to imagine a thriving desert community – and there wasn’t a bad view to be found anywhere.

  1. Seems like you are having a great time exploring here. The photographs have an element of humor and fun as well as being good documentary work and good compositions. That’s what I see anyway.

  2. Nice photo work. we didn’t get back to Marascal Mine last trip but plan to next time out. If you get a chance, write me at address above. I have a private question for you concerning Big Bend visits.

  3. Thank you Joe!
