From High Island Towards Gulf
Photographer: Richard Denney
Taken: January 24, 2010
Caption: From High Island Towards Gulf
Additional Description: This photo provides a sense of the elevation above sea level that High Island affords. Photo taken on Texas 124, looking south towards Gulf of Mexico in the distance (click on photo, looks towards horizon). While it doesn't seem like it's all that "high", it was enough to keep it above the flood waters of Hurricane Ike that devastated so much of Bolivar Peninsula.
