Where I share the incredible things I come across in the world, on this journey of life.

It was a Central Texas town, settled in the 1850s along the banks of the Colorado River. There was a general store, a cotton gin, a school — even a hotel. The town was called Bluffton, and life continued there for decades. By the 1930s, around 50 families were living in or around Bluffton.

Then, the town began a slow death, its last gasping breaths. Because it was decided that the this section of the Colorado River should be expanded and dammed, to create Lake Buchanan. The town of Bluffton would have to be sacrificed to the future.

Today, all that remains are ruins, as the town slowly emerged with dropping lake levels.
