Sunday afternoon, Don and I crawled upon our bikes and headed out to Huntsville, TX. Mostly known as the location of the state prison, Huntsville is much more...much much more and that is why I have to go back to write a part 2 segment!
After an amazing ride through a National Forest and over a long bridge crossing Lake Conroe, our first stop was the Sam Houston Monument. It is situated right off of I-45 and it is huge!
If you have never seen it, look very closely. Can you see my husband standing at the bottom of the statue?
Because it was already mid afternoon, and most businesses closed between 4 and 5, we had to limit our exploring down to one other event before heading back. Guess where we went? The Prison Museum!
It was scary how fast Don got out his camera when I walked into this cell!
..and it would not have been a great museum without seeing the actual electric chair affectionately known as 'Old Sparky'!
