Comments on: Way Out West at Fort Phantom Hill http://sandbox.suitcasesandsippycups.com/2011/08/31/way-out-west-at-fort-phantom-hill/ Just another WordPress site Sat, 18 Feb 2012 23:46:12 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.4.11 By: Sophie http://sandbox.suitcasesandsippycups.com/2011/08/31/way-out-west-at-fort-phantom-hill/#comment-769 Sun, 04 Sep 2011 08:10:16 +0000 http://www.suitcasesandsippycups.com/?p=1272#comment-769 I lived in Oklahoma for a few years (at uni) and the only bit of Texas I managed to see was Dallas. Time to go back to visit – with kids. This looks (and sounds) such an interesting place; really like that first photo.

Pretty sure I wouldn't have made it if I'd lived back then!

I too would not want to live there, but if I was headed west and it was the first civilization I had seen in days I would have happily stopped. Maybe even for a few weeks. As always, thank you so much for my weekly (well more than that) dose of Texas culture and history. I am learning so much about one of our largest states!

I love learning about the history of our early settlers and seeing buildings that have stayed in tact for so many years through who knows what. What a great experience for your family!

Stopping by from the blog hop.
