CCC Hike Davis Mts St Park to Fort Davis National Historic Park

From our campsite, we took a 5 mile hike that followed the old CCC trail that ends up at the national park of Fort Davis (yes, there is a fort in Fort Davis...more of that on another blog).  The CCC trail still has some of the remaining buildings that were built during the depression.

There were some big tracks n the trail but no one knew what they were.

Those CCC guys built some amazing BBQ pits and picnic tables!

After our halfway stop, we continue on the trail that would take us to the fort. 

Glad they had that sign there..

beautiful scenery...beautiful skies...but where is that fort???
