Fort Leaton – Courtyard

IMG_2541

The courtyard, corral, and blacksmith shop at Fort Leaton State Historic Site were all full of history.  The one item you find most people remarking about is the carreta, or ox cart.  It has two six foot high wheels and when fully loaded, it would require several oxen to pull it.  They were typically used to haul freight from San Antonio to cities in Mexico.  Marvelous!
