At the edge of Alamo Creek in Big Bend National Park, Texas, Gilberto Luna built this jacal which is made of rock, earth and plant fiber. It was a scorching hot day the afternoon we were here and I was surprised to find how cool it was inside the jacal. It must have been somewhat uncomfortable though. At only around 4 feet high I had to bend over quite a bit to move around inside.
Nevertheless, Luna raised a large family here and lived here until 1947 when he died at age 108. Luna was a well known resident of Big Bend.
I felt this image needed the antique look for obvious reasons so I made this version in Nik Silver Efex Pro.
