Next new county will be….

San Augustine.  The walk is a YRE in the town of San Augustine. Which means it can be walked most any day of the year.  The walk box is at the County Visitor’s Center at 611 W. Columbia.

San Augustine was the first town in Texas settled entirely by English speaking immigrants from the United States.  San Augustine was established along the El Camino Real.  The wakl route passes historic homes, churches, and the site of Mission Dolores which was established in 1717.

When I walk this event I will post my impressions and a new count of counties still needed.

If you live in San Augustine, drop by the visitors center and request the walk box.  Register in the log book and take a set of directions.  Complete the walk and you will have seen a whole new view of your town.

      I know you are a runner and cyclist, but you might want to give Volksmarching a try the next time the Colorado River Walkers hold an event in Austin. Something the whole family can do together.

      Thanks for following my walking adventures.
