Most outstanding trip report.

Reminds me of the cool clear waters of Balmorhea.   :eusa_clap:

Did the Captain make the trip?

Homero, those trees are amazing!  They look prehistoric.  I also loved the pictures of the old church.  You know I love churches that have miracle stories about them.  The little Jesus statue is wonderful!  Thank you for sharing your experience with us.   :eusa_clap:

By now all of you know i love TREES, really?   :icon_lol: :icon_lol:, i just wish there was a tree guy/gal to shed some light as to how old these trees are and how they got to grow, in that oasis, like that. I know from a fact the Cypress trees if bigger than 2.7 meters in diamter are at least 400 years old. some of these babies were over 7.5 meters in diam. :icon_eek:

Quote
Baldcypress trees can live for hundreds of years, growing to 150 feet (46 m) in height and 12 feet (3.7 m) in diameter. About 200 years are required for baldcypress stems to develop a high proportion of heartwood, renowned for its decay resistance.

 I could not help myself think of you, while i was in that little church...like many aspects in this webpage, you begin to relate things you see in the real world with people  here who talk about them. A little community indeed.
