Post, TX – County #162 stamp collected

We did a 10K in Post yesterday.  We got a much earlier start and it was only 78 degrees when we started.  The walk started at the McDonald’s which sits at the junction of Hwy 380 and Hwy 84.  We first walked thru town and out along  Hwy 380 to the cemetery which has a lovely entrance gate.

We returned to town and went to the old RR depot which is not the Visitor’s Center.

DSCF5933 DSCF5934We left highway 84 and walked through residential and school areas to get in the distance needed.

    I’ve been “through” there numerous times while driving to/from Albuquerque/Abilene. Who knew Post looked that nice!? 🙂

      Isn’t it great what reading blogs can do for us! Hope you stop and visit, but watch out for gas prices. We didn’t fill up in Abilene on our way to Lubbock and was running low as we got to Post. Could not believe their prices were 30 cents a gallon higher!

      • George says:

        I always filled up in Abilene/Albuquerque, then stopped again in Texico (on the Texas side of Clovis). Gas prices there were the lowest of any of the other in-between towns.

        And Post was always my Diet Coke stop! 😉 However, now that I’ve got Abilene permanently in my rear view mirror, doubt I will ever see Post again.

    What a lovely little town! And walking is a great way to really see a place.

    I enjoyed your photos and I really love the movie theatre. I am glad when some of these small movie houses are saved 🙂 Annie

    I love discovering new places, especially off-the-beaten-path small-town America. I’m enjoying seeing your discoveries as well! 🙂

  7. Fascinating stuff. Love the murals and the hooves painted on the sidewalk.

  8. Post has an interesting history as a utopian community:

    Interesting photos! The sculpture of the arrow is similar to the “Iron Feathers” sculpture that stands at the entrance to Will Rogers Airport in Oklahoma City, though I’ve no idea if there is any relationship.

    Spent the night in Post several years ago when we had a camper breakdown there. So I walked the town and saw many of the places you have pictured. Thanks for the memories!
