Texas Capitol

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Today we and Glenn and Joyce went to Austin to tour the State Capitol building.

On the Capitol grounds we saw this cowboy and his bucking mount.

If the cactus was stabbing the horse’s legs, no wonder he was bucking!

The main building stone is Texas red granite.

A high school choir was singing in the rotunda.

Looking up in the rotunda, you see interior of the dome. You can’t miss, of course, the Lone Star in the top center.

Facing one side of the Capitol is the First United Methodist Church. I thank God for every witness for Christ and the church in this and every state capital.
