McCamey, TX – Upton County – Stamp #167 Collected

Our last new county for this trip was Upton where we walked  in the town of McCamey.  McCamey is between Crane and Iraan and is west of San Angelo, so we saved it for last and plan on stopping in San Angelo on the way home.  McCamey is on the flat but the buttes and mesas are visible in the distance.  The walk starts out through a nice subdivision.


Butte off to the south of town viewable from the end of the subdivision.


Cactus corner in the subdivision.


After leaving the subdivision we headed toward downtown and passed the McCamey Garden Club.  They need to expend some time/energy in upkeep on their own building.


Small city park has a nice mural.


At this main intersection of Hwy 385 and Hwy 67 is some nice landscaping.


Landscaping in front of the post office.


Memorial in front of the volunteer fire department.


Mural on building along Hwy 385.


We left downtown and headed west out to an older housing area.  We passed this water tower.


Sign says “best tasting water in town”.


Buttes out to the west of town.


Dead tree full of doves.


We went into another newer subdivision.


Very large planter.


Cute monkey yard art.


Rare sight – rain puddle!  It didn’t rain on us while we walked.


New home under construction.  I liked the dark block against the yellow stucco.


Just another house in the subdivision.

    This looks like a super cool thing to do. Love your photos!

  3. I love the horse wall art and large planter photos. When I was in San Francisco I saw a planter made out of old denim pants. It was pretty neat.
