This art is not in Hermann Park. It is along I-10 on the way into downtown, but I thought it was a nice start to a blog about Houston.

After visiting this Hollywood style sign, we continued on to the walk start at the Wyndham on Main. Once registered we headed out  down Holcomb were we found a couple of fountains and some art.

He was in command of Fort Griffin during the civil war. He was the hero of the Battle of Sabine Pass, the only Civil War conflict in Texas.

The walk continued along the golf course. One section of the path is protected by fencing.

We went adventuring at this point and headed over to visit the tiny train.
