People in the Texas Hill Country tend to be passionate about their boots, whether they actually need them for ranching or not. For one thing, trying to do the two-step or Cotton-eyed Joe in street shoes just looks silly, now doesn't it? We even have a lady here in Wimberley who is known as The Boot Whisperer. It is said that all she has to do is study your feet for a moment to know exactly which pair of boots would be the perfect match for you.

So, what did the Wimberley Vally Arts & Cultural Alliance choose when they wanted to place hand-painted sculptures around town?

Why, six-foot-tall cowboy boots, of course!

I missed the big reveal party, when I could have seen them all together at one time. However, I must admit, it's kinda fun stumbling across them one at a time, as I go about my daily rounds.
