I have always felt drawn to the Carmelite hermits of Christoval, TX. Not to join them or anything, but I appreciate them sitting out there in the middle of nowhere, pursuing their calling to sit out there in the middle of nowhere praying all day.
I also like to watch Big Love.
Little did I know there was a connection between the two. Turns out that the FLDS compound (aka YFZ Ranch) in Eldorado, TX, is a neighbor of the Carmelite hermits, and the guy who keeps an eye on the YFZ Ranch at the Texas Polygamy blog is also a friend of the Carmelites. His latest page of aerial photos of the YFZ Ranch also includes some pictures that show just how out in the middle of nowhere the hermits are.
