Questions for Photos 5 & 6

1. How would you describe the landscape? Compare your description to your surroundings today. What is similar? What is different?

2. Why do you think Big Bend has not grown as rapidly as other parts of Texas, such as Houston and Dallas?

* The photos on this screen have a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a high quality version of Photo 5 and Photo 6, but be aware that each file will take as much as 30 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
