The Davis Mountains-Published Image

I have an image being published in The Nature Conservancy Magazine for a story about the Davis Mountains.

The Davis Mountains are a large range that is often called the Texas Alps.  Here the elevation in towns such as Marfa, Alpine, and Fort Davis is about a mile high and the peaks reach well above 8,000'.  The Davis Mountains, like the Guadalupes, and the Chisos Mountains, are a "sky island" where the mountains provide cooler higher elevations above the lower desert that surrounds them.

The range is host to a large Nature Conservancy preserve, as well as Davis Mountains State Park, and the McDonald Observatory.
