A story has been etched,
etched in millions of years
of sediment...
Sediment of the ages past.
Predominant rock formations
in the Texas Hill Country,
the land on which we now roam
and build and expand,
were laid down
in the mesozoic Era
the Cretaceous Period,
some 65 to 130 million
years ago.
Much of this time Austin, Texas
was covered...
covered by a warm shallow sea.
