01/30/2012 – Crystal City (Zavala County) 10K

 

Another Seasonal event (Jan-June) hosted by the Texas County Walkers (walktx.org).  The beautiful weather couldn’t last.  It was overcast and we had off and on light misting rain.  This was a wonderful event in the Spinach Capital of the World.  The walk starts at the Winter Garden Inn.  You then drive to the walk start near the remains of the World War II Internment Camp.   The signboards tell an awful story of the imprisonment and deportation of American Citizens who happened to be of Japanese or German blood.  On a more upbeat note, the walk takes you downtown where there is Popeye stuff.  It then takes you on a hike/bike trail which is an out and back section.  Returning into town you pass the public library with more Popeye and the Zavala County Courthouse  on your way back to your car.  There is a picture website at:  http://2012.walktx.org/CrystalCity
