Over the Labor Day weekend I took a short day trip to Gonzales, seat of Gonzales County, to revisit this important historic town and its J. Riely Gordon designed courthouse. It was a hot, sunny Texas day and I enjoyed the ride west on I-10 to Flatonia, Texas. I stopped at Joel's BBQ in Flatonia and had a sliced beef sandwich before heading south on Highway 95 to Moulton, in Lavaca County. Moulton is a lovely German-Czech-American town in the rolling hills of south-central Texas. It doesn't have a courthouse but it does have a number of historic buildings and is worth a visit.
I turned west at Moulton and took Farm Road 532 to Gonzales. This narrow, 2-lane road winds through the rolling hills and is a delight to drive on a nice day. I stopped and photographed a "too good to be true" ranch house just west of Moulton and then stopped again a few hundred yards up the road to record this pasture scene.
