So when I saw this map on FB, I had to read the article and look over the map. Can you imagine drawing out a map and putting so much effort and detail in it? Awesome stuff! I have two maps framed in my house - both of Texas land grants at different times in history. I love the history, but I love the colors of the maps and the info found on them. I also remember being fascinated by a topographical map of the Carson National Forest that hung at the Community House in Red River. My dad had a similar map. We often used it while hiking back in the day. I need to find out what happen to that map.
My fascination with maps is probably why I choose this as my screen saver. It is not just that Jesse is in the picture, but that the streets and houses are shown in the photo. It reminds me of the fairytale map. It reminds me of Scotland. I can make believe that I am there in the streets looking at the houses, eating at the pub on the harbor, etc.
