      ... and saunter on over and give Clay a bottle.

      Mining mercury was a difficult business which took its toll. The Cemetery at Lajitas beckoned us as did the cemetery in nearby is Terlingua which was also a mercury mining town. In Terlingua, the only remnants of the mining days are a ghost town of the Chisos Mining Company and several nearby capped and abandoned mines. Carroll Shelby, yes –Mr. Shelby Mustang - who owned a 220,000-acre ranch nearby – ...

      ... The engineering and construction itself was masterful considering the time period in which it was built, but the overall implications and standing in that place witnessing first-hand the potential for destruction and the clearly laid out process by which it would happen within minutes of an order, was just horrifying.
