Wonderfull photos, reminds me of a painting my mom had by a local artist, Mrs. Pritchard. I was doing research on ancestors from Mason County, who where buried in the New Pontotoc Cemetery. You should offer some of these for sale....

I was thrilled to stumble across your pictures of Mason.  This is actually where my Me-Ma (mom’s mom) grew up, and as I sit here at home in MD, house sitting for them, while they attend her mothers funeral, I’m still able to look around and see the same beautiful sites they are seeing as well.  I am an amateur photographer and haven’t been back down in a while to take any pictures, so I was searching for some to welcome them home too, which is how I came to your site.  Thanks for sharing your talent!

I am a Texan transplanted to South Carolina and I am homesick for sights like these. Thanks for your kindness in sharing them.

Your pictures are gorgeous! The locations helped us plan our trip from Austin tomorrow, but it looks like we may have to spend more than day to see it all! Thanks a million.

Thanks for sharing your pictures.
We were in the Inks Lake State Park
area the wk of March 21st and the
Blue Bonnets were small then but
enjoyable to see.  The Eagles were
at the Llano River on FM29 with their
eaglets! Thanks again.

Those are great pictures.  I went to Willow City Loop North of Fredricksburg on Hwy. 16 Saturday, 4-16-05 and the wild flowers were in full bloom.  Even if the flowers aren't out the drive is great.

I have travelled over some of the same roads and have gotten some good shots, but yours are great!  thanks

Some day I'll get to Texas from Illinois to see those beautiful flowers. Until then I'll depend on these beautiful images.  Thank you!
