Gates of the Hill Country, Texas, Page 3


Above, this is what I am going to call a Ranch Gate. The upside down "U" structure is what I am referring to. This one is quite tall, ohhh, guessing 20 feet. There is wrought iron below, a Texas star and a wagon wheel (to the left) of the Ranch Gate. Inside the Ranch Gate structure there are 2 sections, to the left and to the right that have some design. See below, it reminds me of a peacock tail or sun rays, what do you think?




Left, an enlargement of the sun, or the peacock tail.







Above, a Ranch Gate with a curved top, intials at the very top, as well as the name of the ranch, stone columns, flags (US and Texas), wrought iron fencing and some of those entrance mechanisms, one inside the gate, one outside the gate. There are also electric lights on each of the larger columns, which cannot be seen in this electronically enhanced and reduced version of the photo.

Above, this Ranch Gate has a solar panal for power, stone wall and columns (behind which you can see part of a fence line made from tree branches), the house number on the functional portion of the gate and if you look closely, on either side of the house number you will see a Texas Star and Texas State outline. The Ranch Gate portion of this entry is made from some pretty hefty looking metal pipe.
