West Texas: A Study in Erosion

Posted by on 3/27/13 at 02:50pm

Last week Graham and I made the trek out to Big Bend National Park for our continuing work on the Fossil Discovery Trail. On the way back I stopped in Fort Stockton to take in some of the intriguing architecture and oil infrastructure that is in various states of decay. Nearly every conceivable form of desert related fading, cracking, and crumbling seems to be taking place.
