Skyline Drive Crossing Ridge between Keesey and Hospital Canyons, Davis Mountains State Park, c. 1935

Skyline Drive traverses the face and top of the ridge separating the park from the town of Fort Davis. CCC enrollees built the road with basic tools-hand rock drills, pickaxes, shovels, and wheelbarrows. The dry-laid guardrails were constructed of locally excavated and hand-shaped stone; unfortunately, they no longer exist. This view looks down the streambed of Limpia Creek.
