Gates of the Hill Country, Texas, Page 1

Last year when we visited the Hill County, I fell in love with the Gates. I decided if we ever got back I was going to take a LOT of photos of them, to share. I fell in love with the individuality, the art, the simple ones, the outrageous ones. Here are some, Thanks to the people of the Hill County and their great gate builders.

Above, very functional, with a bit of brick at the sides, yucca plants for decoration.

Above, columns of stacked stone, wrought iron, and cattle grate. Note the MK and JK on the columns.

Above, wrought iron, with spear tops, gate & sides the same, initial J.

Above, functional taken into the world of nature. Isn't this fabulous? This gate is quite tall, maybe 10 foot.

Above, columns, local stone, flags. Note the UPS box, on the short column on the left, it is about 4 foot tall.
