US 90 enters Texas on the east at Orange County and continues west across the Lone Star State for exactly 607.861 miles according to TXDOT. This important east-west highway parallels the Southern Pacific Railway's "Sunset Line" connecting New Orleans with Los Angeles. I had previously visited Orange, Beaumont, Liberty, Houston (my home), Columbus, Seguin, San Antonio, Hondo, Uvalde, Sanderson, Alpine, Marfa and Van Horn, where Highway 90 ends, sort of in the middle of nowhere. Each of these 13 cities and towns are county seats located on US 90. Now it was time for me to see the last two.
But first, a stop in Uvalde, number 20 on my list. I'd been here early on in my project, on August 27, 2009. It was now time to take additional photographs of the Uvalde County courthouse and its surroundings.
