The Tower

The Tower is a radio and telecommunications tower that is on the Cheatham Hill. The hill is one of the highest spots in Angelina County. The views from the top are breathtaking. Papa cleared and farmed on the hill as long as I can remember, however the hill is very susceptible to drought conditions. It does have a good red clay base, (as evident by the fire any mounds) and was an favorite spot of mine. I planted prickly pears at one end of the pasture that I rescued from West Texas and they still grow.
Once the tower was built and the buildings that followed were erected, this has become a blight on the ranch. The natural beauty is scared and the tower companies are scum.
