The sun shines through the trees at the Big Thicket National Preserve in late August 1996. The preserve is located just north of Houston and Beaumont, TX and has historically been home to dense woodlands in the state. The Big Thicket was mostly uninhabited until heavy settlement from the U.S. began in the mid-19th century, and was even used as a refuge by runaway slaves and other fugitives.
