House of Salt - template challenge



I took my grandson to Vicksburg two summers ago. Since we headed out I-20 I decided to make a detour to Grand Saline, TX where my great grandparents lived when I was growing up. The Morton Salt mine is there, hence the name Grand Saline, and they have a house in the middle of town made of salt blocks. Because of weathering it has to be repaired and sometimes replaced over time.



My grandson couldn't believe it was really salt, so I told him to lick it - never dreamed he would do it!! They no longer permit trips down into the mine so he didn't get to experience a floor, ceiling and walls of nothing but salt, salt and more salt. The air even tastes salty. But he did get to taste the salt house. LOL



We made many trips down there when we were little, but it is no longer safe to take tours.



The font is Balthazar; the border, salt bricks from the house.
