Traveling El Camino Real de los Tejas virtual field trip. Here we are with student taking a virtual trip to El Caminio Real de los Tejas.  It was Designated as a National Historic Trail in 2004, El Camino Real de los Tejas (Highway 6 in Louisiana and Highway 21 in Texas) has existed for more than 300 years.
El Camino Real has its easternmost beginning in Natchitoches, Louisiana and runs from Piney Woods through rolling hills to the arid lands of Old Mexico.
The Spaniards and the French that marked the trail were followed by such men as Moses Austin and his son Stephen Fuller Austin (The Father of Texas), Jim Bowie, Davy Crockett, Sam Houston, and early missionaries of multiple faiths.
An abundance of historic cities await the modern day traveler on the Texas stretch of El Camino Real, including San Antonio, Bastrop, Crockett, Alto, Nacogdoches, and San Augustine. The students, teachers and all enjoyed the chance to learn and explore.
