1. LBJ – The Image Marker
Inscription.  From his childhood and throughout his political career, Lyndon Johnson drew from his western heritage. The grandson of a Chisholm Trail cattle drover never forgot that “can do” spirit of the cowboy way. The LBJ Ranch was the best place for national and world leaders, celebrities, and respected journalists to encounter the real LBJ—a progressive Westerner in a big hat, with big dreams and big goals, under a big sky.
