Here are the graves of Lyndon Johnson and Lady Bird Johnson in the family cemetery at the LBJ Ranch near Johnson City, Texas. I believe these photos are from my first visit to the LBJ Ranch, which was in May or June of 2010.
And just to bring it all together, here are buffalo grazing on the land surrounding the LBJ Ranch near Johnson City, Texas during my visit there on December 12, 2010. Clearly, LBJ also knew what awesome animals buffalo are (I like calling them “buffalo” instead of “American bison”, so if I’m using that name incorrectly, write down your complaint and submit it through the proper channels.)

I’m just organizing some of the folders on my computer and finding some LBJ-related photos that you guys might enjoy. By the way, my experience in Texas might have been more pleasant had it been centered around the peace and beauty of the LBJ Ranch in the Hill Country with limited visits from time-to-time into Austin only to hang out at the LBJ Library. And air-conditioning 24/7/365.
My girlfriend and I visited Johnson City, Texas last weekend to check out the Hill Country Holiday Lighting Spectacular and we made sure to stop by the LBJ Ranch for a quick visit. Since she’s a photographer, she figured my readers would enjoy some photos of the visit and I think she’s right.
