Friday's Faces from the Past: Dad At Cross Mountain, Fredericksburg, Texas

My parents' home in Fredericksburg, Texas, is near the base of Cross Mountain on the north side of town.  In fact, it's close enough to walk to and up the mountain, as Dad and I did shortly after they moved there, in September 1993.  In the photo at left, you can see the "back" side of the cross, which has lights that are turned on at night (as pictured above).

Below right is how the other side of the cross looks during the day,  and at left is the historical marker for Kreuzberg or Cross Mountain.
