I love to see monuments like this documented online and added to Google Earth. Also, welcome to our new group - Confederate States of America. I hope you'll be adding many more images.

Neat. I see you've made it to Fort Stockton as well. Does that mean you've also driven down into Big Bend? -Malcolm
